Laudato Si Quotes on the Environment

A Spirituality which forgets God as all powerful and Creator is not acceptable. In the Judaeo-Christian tradition, the word ‘creation’ has a broader meaning than ‘nature’, for it has to do with God’s loving plan, in which every creature has its own value and significance.  (Laudato Si,76)
