Benedict on Creation

Christopher Dodson of the North Dakota Catholic Conference writes: After reading some of the attacks on Pope Francis for “straying” into the subject of climate change that his predecessor supposedly would not have touched, I recalled that I had once compiled a list of speeches and addresses about climate change made Pope Benedict and members [Read More…]
