"As stewards of God’s creation, we are called to make the earth a beautiful garden for the human family. When we destroy our forests, ravage our soil and pollute our seas, we betray that noble calling."
— Pope Francis from written remarks at the University of Santo Tomas, Manila, Philippines, on Jan. 18, 2015
