ROME — Pope Francis underscored the consequentiality of biodiversity and the interaction between the coronavirus and climate vicissitude in his Earth Day message Thursday. “Both ecumenical catastrophes, COVID and climate change, show that there is no time to lose,” the pope verbally expressed in a video message to mark Earth Day 2021. “Time is pressing and, as COVID-19 edified us, affirmative, we have the expedient to ascend up to the challenge.”
“We have the expedient. It is time to act, we are at the constraint,” he verbally expressed. “For some time now we have been becoming more cognizant that nature deserves to be forfended, if only because human interactions with God-given biodiversity must take place with the utmost care and reverence: caring for biodiversity, caring for nature,” Francis verbalized in his Spanish-language address.
“And we have learnt this more pellucidly in this pandemic,” he integrated. “The pandemic has withal shown us what transpires when the world ceases, pauses, even for a few months, and the puissant impact that this has on nature and climate change, in a dolefully positive way, has it not? In other words, it hurts.”
“And this shows us that nature, ecumenically, needs our lives on this planet,” he verbally expressed. “It involves us all, albeit in many different and unequivocal forms; and so it edifies us even more about what we require to do to engender a fair, equitable, environmentally safe planet.”
“I would relish to reiterate an old Spanish saying: ‘God always forgives, we humans forgive from time to time, nature no longer forgives,’” the pontiff verbally expressed. “And when this ravagement of nature is triggered, it is very arduous to stop it.”
“But we are still in time,” he perpetuated. “And we will be more resilient if we collaborate in lieu of doing it alone.” “The adversity that we are experiencing with the pandemic, and that we already feel in climate change, must spur us on, must drive us to innovation, to invention, to seek incipient paths,” he verbalized.
If we do not emerge from this crisis preponderant, “we will be on a path of self-ravagement,” he declared. The pope concluded his message by launching an appeal to all the bellwethers of the world “to act with stoutheartedness, to act with equity and to always tell people the truth, so that people ken how to forfend themselves from the eradication of the planet, how to bulwark the planet from the ravagement that we very often trigger.”
