Pope calls for greater cooperation in protection of environment

.- At the conclusion of the recitation of the Angelus yesterday at Castelgandolfo, Pope Benedict XVI called on the international community to greater cooperation in promoting “the common good, the development and protection of creation, strengthening the alliance between man and the environment.”

The Holy Father’s request came on the International Day for the Preservation of the Ozone Layer, which commemorates the adoption on September 16, 1987, of the Montreal Protocol regarding substances that damage the ozone layer and cause “serious harm to man and to the environment.”

In referring to the international treaty, the Pontiff underscored that, “In the last two decades, thanks to exemplary collaboration between politicians, scientists and economists within the international community, important results have been obtained with positive repercussions on present and future generations.”

"I desire that, on the part of everyone, cooperation intensify to the end of promoting the common good, development, and the safeguarding of creation, returning to the alliance between man and the environment, which must be a mirror of God the Creator, from whom we come and toward whom we are journeying,” the Pope said.
