Pope Francis' Laudatio Si is a treasure trove of practical advice for living simply or at least moderately. He seems to want people do use less air conditioning and facebook. I've already used "The Pope says if you don't eat all your meat your robbing poor people" on my kids.
But, in a letter that is addressed not just to Catholics, but to the whole world (or at least Matt Damon), what sort of submission does Joe Catholic have to give to the popes words (especially the practical advice, not the 2nd part where he goes in to the theological aspects of everything).
And by sort of submission I mean in terms of specific Latin words like Obsequium.
