What people are saying about the recent hurricanes

People are saying a lot of things about the hurricanes, but what’s most interesting is what Pope Francis and Orthodox leader, Bartholomew, had to say (below). It kind of looks like they were blaming the hurricanes on ‘morale decay’.

“We urgently appeal to those in positions of social and economic, as well as political and cultural, responsibility to hear the cry of the Earth and to attend to the needs of the marginalized, but above all to respond to the plea of millions and support the consensus of the world for the healing of our wounded creation,” they wrote.

“We are convinced that there can be no sincere and enduring resolution to the challenge of the ecological crisis and climate change unless the response is concerted and collective, unless the responsibility is shared and accountable, unless we give priority to solidarity and service.”
