United Nations Climate Summit – September 23
Many Catholics are troubled about the state of our home, planet Earth. They are concerned for the poor and the vulnerable who suffer immeasurably from the impact of environmental degradation and climate change. They are concerned about the future of our children and all the grandchildren of the world. Appreciation is extended to all who promote a culture of life in all its manifestations, including natural ecology – the prerequisite for all life. The United Nations Climate Summit takes place on September 23. Let us pray for all world leaders charged with the responsibility to come to an agreement on climate change. As stated by our Canadian Bishops, problems cannot be remedied without international cooperation – “The interdependence of ecosystems requires policies that go beyond the borders of states.”
