Pope Benedict has not been shy in regards to issues of the environment. He has spoken frequently about everyone's right to food, right to water and responsible sharing. He has spoken about the real meaning of progress and development and what that means for our planet of limited resources. He has discussed climate change, the connection between science and nature, and how the path of cultivating peace is directly linked to protecting creation. In preparation for the UN Conference Rio+20, some faith analysis is important reading. Sell also the Faith, Econ omy and Ecology Transitions webpage.

Much like the current crisis, the Depression wasn’t an event isolated to the world of finance. In fact, it was magnified by, and in turn magnified the impacts of, a corresponding ecological crisis. Much like we face today.

"The external deserts in the world are growing, because the internal deserts have become so vast," asserted Pope Benedict XVI in his inaugural homily. The brokenness of our relationship with the natural world, as evidenced among other concerns by global warming, the extinction of species, polluted air and waterways, and soil depletion, reflects back to us the brokenness of our relationships within the human family.
