Protect Our Common Home

"God destined the earth and all it contains for all people and nations so that all created things would be shared fairly by all humankind under the guidance of justice tempered by charity."

The Church in the Modern World, #69

Protect Our Common Home, Human Dignity

 “The order of creation demands that a priority be given to those human activities that do not cause irreversible damage to nature, but which instead are woven into the social, cultural, and religious fabric of the different communities. In this way, a sober balance is achieved between consumption and the sustainability of resources.” - Message to the Director General of the Food and Agriculture Organization for the Celebration of World Food Day, October 16, 2006.
