"We return so that we might bear witness to the hope that is in you, the hope you have manifested through the rebuilding your lives and your community. And we are present with you to call for a renewed consciousness for environmental responsibility, and an awareness of what such a consciousness entails."

The patriarch went on to say that progress was not enough to stop nature’s fury, and he regretted that the progress being made in other areas was slow to adhere to the wisdom that should lead man to care for his planet.

TIME magazine placed Bartholomew one the list of the 100 most influential people on the planet and gave him the title of “The Green Patriarch.”
