Pope Francis and creation

(Vatican Radio) Since the beginning of his Pontificate, Pope Francis has spoken of the importance of protecting creation. At his Installation Mass on Tuesday the Holy Father said, “let us be “protectors” of creation, protectors of God’s plan inscribed in nature, protectors of one another and of the environment.”

Speaking about Pope Francis’ message, FAO Assistant Director-General of Forests, Eduardo Rojas-Briales says, “His predecessor Benedict XVI had already started a very important environmental discourse.”

Pope Francis, he continued, has “strengthened this linkage between the religious message as well as the need to keep creation and to keep nature in a good state.”
