Conservation is Conservative

Pope Francis–Conservative Quote of the Week

Pilgrims in St. Peter’s Square listen to the installation homily of Pope Francis.

Personal Note from Rob Sisson, President of ConservAmerica

As a cradle Catholic, I have been following the recent events at the Vatican with great interest. Pope Francis, in just a few days, has made it clear that creation care will be one of the priorities of his papacy. This morning, at his inauguration Mass, he brought tears of joy and hope to my eyes (I’m not ashamed to admit!) with these words from his Homily:

“Please, I would like to ask all those who have positions of responsibility in economic, political and social life, and all men and women of goodwill: let us be “protectors” of creation, protectors of God’s plan inscribed in nature, protectors of one another and of the environment.”

“It (being a protector) means protecting all creation, the beauty of the created world… It means respecting each of God’s creatures and respecting the environment in which we live.”
