Laudato Si - why you should read it

Don't get your Church news from Yahoo!

From the Preface of Creation:

[God] you formed man in your own image
and set humanity over the whole world in all its wonder,
to rule in your name over all you have made
and for ever praise you in your mighty works,
through Christ our Lord.

  1. I remember crossing a bridge overlooking a picturesque river and someone had scrawled on the bridge, "Earth is alive and man is a parasite!" I drew a line through "parasite" and wrote underneath "imago dei" (Hey, the graffiti was already there. Might as well make it true graffiti. :))

    Anyway, it reminded me that care for the environment that is based on a distorted or false view of Man will not only allow all manner of evil, but will spread that evil with a religious zeal.
