From Pope Francis' Encyclical:
"I urgently appeal, then, for a new dialogue about how we
are shaping the future of our planet. We need a
conversation which includes everyone, since the
environmental challenge we are undergoing, and its human
roots, concern and affect us all. The worldwide ecological
movement has already made considerable progress and led
to the establishment of numerous organizations committed
to raising awareness of these challenges.
"Regrettably, many efforts to seek concrete solutions to the
environmental crisis have proved ineffective, not only
because of powerful opposition but also because of a more
general lack of interest. Obstructionist attitudes, even on the
part of believers, can range from denial of the problem to
indifference, nonchalant resignation or blind confidence in
technical solutions. We require a new and universal solidarity.
"As the bishops of Southern Africa have stated: “Everyone’s
talents and involvement are needed to redress the damage
caused by human abuse of God’s creation”. All of us can
cooperate as instruments of God for the care of creation,
each according to his or her own culture, experience,
involvements and talents."
