Focus on Money Is Destroying Environment

DURBAN, South Africa (CNS) – Excessive focus on money is destroying the environment and dehumanizing people, said Honduran Cardinal Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga, president of Caritas Internationalis.

Religious communities have a duty to call attention to the importance of the human person, who is “at the center of creation,” he said, while international leaders were debating the extension of legal limits on the production of greenhouse gas emissions.
