Pope Francis has published a papal document urging Christians to adopt climate change and environmental propaganda as a core part of their faith.

  • Pope: “God gave us a bountiful garden, but we have turned it into a polluted wasteland of debris, desolation and filth.”
  • Document released to coincide with the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation.
  • Pope document mirrors Paris Accord on Agenda 2030 reform and false World Meteorological Organization (WMO) data.
  • Pope on Paris Accord: “It is up to citizens to insist that this happen, and indeed to advocate for even more ambitious goals.”
  • Bishop Brian Farrell, head of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity: “It is obviously a rare thing to add to the acts of mercy, but things change. This shows the movement of the church through time.”
  • “We need new calls for responsibility.”

(ROME, ITALY) Pope Francis called on Thursday for concerted action against environmental degradation and climate change, renewing a fierce attack on consumerism and financial greed which, he said, were threatening the planet.

A year after publishing the first papal document dedicated to the environment, the pope urged Christians to make the defense of nature a core part of their faith, adding it to the seven “works of mercy” they are meant to perform.
