Tom, thank you for your comments on the Pope's powerful and enlightening encyclical on protecting our natural environment. On such an important topic that affects the future health and well being of our children and grandchildren, it is so helpful to have the the Pope provide his moral leadership. The air, water and condition of our planet cannot be significantly improved overnight, but a roadmap to the steps that must be taken on a consistent basis can make the earth a much better place to live 20 years from now. The Pope's encyclical helps to start us down that path. Peace.

Tom Henry

Thanks for your kind words.


How can a person listen to the Interfaith Power and Light telephone conference that you reference?
