Reper­cus­sions of fail­ing to pro­tect the en­vi­ron­ment

The Standard (St. Catharines) - - Opinion -

Pope Fran­cis, who ap­peared on the episode of “60 Min­utes” tele­vised on Mother’s Day, warned that “greed and con­sumerism is wrong, as well as, de­stroy­ing Mother Earth in any way,” and that is when the light went on that the Pope could eas­ily be speak­ing of the what’s oc­cur­ring in Ni­a­gara Falls where the Thun­der­ing Wa­ters for­est and the ir­re­place­able ecosys­tems are threat­ened by de­vel­op­ment.

Per­haps there’s a mes­sage for those who voted to push this dis­as­ter one step closer: Your spir­i­tual well be­ing just may be at stake.
