Many mornings, well before NCR’s U.S.-based staff members have opened our browsers, Vatican correspondent Joshua J. McElwee is alerting us to news of the day via Slack, the digital communications tool we use to link up our geographically dispersed colleagues.
In the EarthBeat channel of Slack on Thursday, five years to the day after Pope Francis released Laudato Si’, Josh reported that he was just back from the first in-person briefing the Vatican press office had conducted since the pandemic lockdown. He said the Vatican had released an extensive report about what the city-state had done about the environment since the pope’s encyclical.
