After receiving the formal symbols of papal power, during the homily, he told the gathering, “I would like to ask all those who have positions of responsibility in economic, political and social life, and all men and women of goodwill: Let us be protectors of creation, protectors of God’s plan inscribed in nature, protectors of one another and of the environment.”
Wearing his papal whites, Pope Francis issued an appeal for the protection of the weak, the poor and the world environment. He waved, smiled and gave the thumbs-up to the ecstatic crowds in his usual informal style.
He reminded people not to forget that authentic power was service and only those who served with love were able to protect. He stressed the need to respect all creatures and environment.
