Pope: Christians Should Unite to Care for Creation, Poor

In his August 27 sermon from his summer residence south of Rome, Pope Benedict XVI warned that, “damage to the environment makes the life of the poor…particularly unbearable.” He called on Christians to unite to care for the Earth and expressed support for the Italian church’s “day for the safeguarding of Creation,” a September 1 event when parishes across Italy ask believers to meditate on ecological damage. Catholic congregations share the celebration with the Greek Orthodox Church, which in 1990 declared its Ecclesiastical New Year, September 1, a day dedicated to celebration and protection of the environment.
