French Cardinal In The New Laudato Si Church: Ecology Is A ‘Question Of Life And Death’

“Evil books will be abundant on earth and the sprits of darkness will spread everywhere a universal slackening of all that concerns the service of God. They will have great power over Nature: there will be churches built to serve these spirits. People will be transported from one place to another by these evil spirits, even priests, for they will not have been guided by the good spirit of the Gospel which is a spirit of humility, charity and zeal for the glory of God. Our Lady of La Salette 19 Sept. 1846 (Published by Mélanie 1879)

In a homily preached a week before the beginning of the 2015 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP 21) in Paris, Cardinal André Vingt-Trois warned against two ecological temptations. The first temptation is “to dream of an idyllic universe” without mankind, he preached on November 22 at the Cathedral of Notre Dame. “This is an earthly paradise without men. It is ecology against humanity, in other words a vision of the human being as an intruder and a destroyer.” The second temptation, Cardinal Vingt-Trois continued, is a “partial ecology” in which we make better use of resources in order to “safeguard our way of life” and to “ensure that our prosperity will continue.”  Catholic Culture Read More>>>>>>
