Celebrate Earth Day

April 22, 2007
“Jesus taught us very clearly what it is to be a master. It is to be a servant. Far from understanding Genesis as permission to take what we like from the earth, we must consider ourselves to be at the service of the earth, every bit as much as we are at the service of our neighbor.”
Keith Cardinal O’Brien, 2007 Easter homily
“In the face of the great threats to the natural environment, we want to express our concern at the negative consequences for humanity and for the whole of creation which can result from economic and technological progress that does not know its limits. As religious leaders, we consider it one of our duties to encourage and to support all efforts made to protect God’s creation.”
Pope Benedict XVI and Patriarch Bartholomew I, Common Declaration of November 30, 2006
“In dialogue with Christians of various churches, we need to commit ourselves to caring for the created world, without squandering its resources, and sharing them in a cooperative way.”
Pope Benedict XVI, August 27, 2006
Smell the flowers while you can.
