The Earth is our environment to protect and our garden to tend to.
The relationship of mankind with nature must not be conducted with greed, manipulation and exploitation, but it must conserve the divine harmony that exists between creatures and Creation within the logic of respect and care, so it can be put to the service of our brothers, also of future generations.
I exhort everyone to see the world through the eyes of God the Creator.
Pope Francis's important messages continue to inspire and encourage people worldwide to take responsibility for the environment, and do so in the service of God. For this, and a multitude of other great efforts, we look to him as one of today’s greatest moral authorities on the issue of climate change and its impact on the world’s most vulnerable communities. Today, more than ever, we need to safeguard our planet and care for the Earth.
This Earth Day, Protect our Home.
