Earth Day 2013

The vocation of being a ‘protector’ [. . .] means protecting all creation, the beauty of the created world, as the Book of Genesis tells us and as Saint Francis of Assisi showed us [. . .] In the end, everything has been entrusted to our protection, and all of us are responsible for it. Be protectors of God’s gifts!

~ Pope Francis

  1. Amen. It’s great to see Pope Francis calling for the protection of creation.

  2. Although I’m Catholic, I haven’t been a fan of the papacy. But I love Pope Francis! His simplicity, humility, and compassion has won me over. It is, of course, common knowledge that our church is racked with all sorts of financial and sexual scandals. My hope and prayer is that he’ll be catalyst for real reform, renewal and change in our church…
