Pope Francis on Environment

 

 


Avert serious effects of environmental deterioration

Business is a noble vocation directed to producing wealth and improving the world. It can be a fruitful source of prosperity from the area in which it operates, especially if it assists the creation of jobs as an essential job of its purpose to the common good. This common good also includes the Earth. A central theme of the encyclical which I recently [released was that we should view our world as] our common home. We need a conversation which includes everyone since the environmental challenge we are undergoing and its human roots concern and effect us all.

I call for a courageous and responsible effort to redirect our steps and to avert the most serious effects of the environmental deterioration caused by human activity. I am convinced that we can make a difference, I'm sure. And I have no doubt that the United States, and this Congress, have an important role to play.
