Pope Francis made an historic visit to America recently. Millions of people were moved by the presence and new world view of this special pontiff. His respect for our environment deserves special recognition. May he be blessed for his work.
“As stewards of God’s creation, we are called to make the earth a beautiful garden for the human family. When we destroy our forests, ravage our soil and pollute our seas, we betray that noble calling.”
“May the relationship between man and nature not be driven by greed, to manipulate and exploit, but may the divine harmony between beings and creation be conserved in the logic of respect and care.”
“We received this world as an inheritance from past generations, but also as a loan from future generations, to whom we will have to return it!”
