Pope Francis adds his voice to protecting the earth

Papal encyclical On Care For Our Common Home is a great read.

"We know that approximately one-third of all food produced is discarded, and 'whenever food is thrown out it is as if it were stolen from the table of the poor'." (No 49)

Think of that the next time you are pushing food off your plate into a waste container.

Again.

"When media and the digital world become omnipresent, their influence can stop people from learning how to live wisely, to think deeply and to love generously." (No 47)

"The deterioration of the environment and of society affects the most vulnerable people of the planet..." (No 48)
