Those of us who had been praying for the world to wake up to the urgency of the current ecological crisis put our hopes in the hands of Pope Francis and this encyclical."

"Gold and diamonds are often mined under brutal, abusive conditions. Children are injured or even killed working in hazardous mines. Whole communities face ill-health when mines pollute waterways with toxic chemicals. In war, civilians have suffered enormously as abusive armed groups have enriched themselves by exploiting gold and diamonds."
