VATICAN CITY (CNS) — The care of the environment and the fight against climate change is not a lofty goal for humanity but a moral imperative, Pope Francis said.
The worsening climate crisis can no longer be ignored, and it is up to all human beings, who were entrusted by God as “stewards of his gift of his creation,” to act, the pope said in a message July 13 to participants at a Vatican conference on climate change.
