With our duty to protect God's gifts to us all, check out these encouraging words of three recent pontiffs.
In caring for God’s creation we tend to focus on things like recycling, reducing food-waste, and planting trees — and with all the bad news about the state of the natural world theses days, no one could blame us if we feel that our efforts are barely a drop in a plastic-filled ocean. Yet we should not be disheartened. As our three most recent popes remind us in their writings — including Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si’ — we can unite to protect God’s gift to us all, in order to ensure that future generations have an earthly home that can sustain them.
