Time of Creation: Pope calls for prayer and respect for the environment: no to looting, yes to sharing
Pope Francis releases a message accompanying his prayer intention for September, which this month is for respect for the planet’s resources: that we “take care of Creation responsibly”. In his prayer intention for September 2020, Pope Francis asks everyone to pray that we learn to respect the planet’s resources It has become the custom of Pope Francis to release a video message detailing his prayer intention for each month.
We are squeezing out the planet’s goods. Squeezing them out, as if the earth were an orange. Countries and businesses from the global north have enriched themselves by exploiting the natural resources of the south, creating an “ecological debt.” Who is going to pay this debt?
In addition, this “ecological debt” is increased when multinationals do abroad what they would never be allowed to do in their own countries. It’s outrageous. Today, not tomorrow; today, we have to take care of Creation responsibly. Let us pray that the planet’s resources will not be plundered, but shared in a just and respectful manner. No to plundering; yes to sharing. The full text of the prayer intentionhere
