“Today the ecological crisis has assumed such proportions that it is everyone’s responsibility; there is an order in the universe that must be respected; The human person endowed with the ability to choose freely has the great responsibility of preserving this order for the well-being of future generations. (World Day of Peace- 1990) WE BELIEVE that the world belongs to God, the Creator, the One and Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit, who in his mercy has revealed himself to humanity in Jesus Christ…
