Pope's Audience: If we destroy nature, nature will destroy us

2014-05-21

Favorable weather means Pope Francis spends more time greeting pilgrims gathered at St. Peter's Square. This week, the Pope signed a boy's arm cast, and even stopped several times to kiss people with disabilities, who were visibly excited.

During his catechesis, he talked about science. He said, this gift from the Holy Spirit allows people to see nature a gift from God.

POPE FRANCIS
"If God sees Creation as a good and beautiful thing, we must also adopt this attitude, to see Creation as good and beautiful.”

The Pope has frequently expressed his concern over the environment, and it's widely expected to be the topic of his next encyclical. During the audience, he issued another warning.

POPE FRANCIS
"This must be our attitude towards Creation: we must protect it. Because if we destroy Creation, Creation will destroy us. Let's not forget that.”

Near the end, the Pope asked the roughly 50,000 pilgrims present to pray for his upcoming trip to the Holy Land, as well as the World Day of Prayer for the Church in China, which takes place on Saturday.
