“We exist only in relationships: with God the Creator, with our brothers and sisters as members of a common family, and with all of God’s creatures within our common home. We cannot live in harmony with creation if we are not at peace with the Creator who is the source and origin of all things.”

“The earth herself, burdened and laid waste,
is among the most abandoned and maltreated of our poor; she ‘groans in travail’.
We have forgotten that we ourselves are dust of the earth;
our very bodies are made up of her elements,
we breathe her air and we receive life and refreshment from her waters.”

(Pope Francis – Laudato si’)
