Stewardship of Creation: An Earth Day Message

Posted by Roger Lopez, OFM on 4/21/19 7:00 AM

“Nature is at our disposition and we are called to exercise a responsible stewardship over it,” Pope Francis said in 2014 at the World Day of Peace. Yet so often we are driven by greed and by the arrogance of dominion, possession, manipulation and exploitation; we do not preserve nature; nor do we respect it or consider it a gracious gift which we must care for and set at the service of our brothers and sisters, including future generations.

Father Roger Lopez, OFM, echoes that sentiment in today's video—a perfect message for Earth Day.
