Peter Morales on Pope Francis’ Climate Change Encyclical

Please follow this link to UUA President Peter Morales’ thoughts on Pope Francis new encyclical on climate change.
What is Commit2Respond?

Commit2Respond is a coalition of Unitarian Universalists and other people of faith and conscience working for climate justice.

Unitarian Universalists and other people of faith and conscience have been on the frontlines of environmental justice for decades. United in collective action, connected through partnership, we will change the world.

We are diverse in spiritual belief, yet united in faith that a better world is possible and that our collective power can create change.

Morales writes: We are especially gratified by the Pope’s emphasis on the effects this crisis is having on the world’s lowest-income and most marginalized communities. “A true ecological approach,” writes Pope Francis, “must integrate questions of justice in debates on the environment, so as to hear both the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor.” We hear those cries.
