After his weekly Angelus prayer in Saint Peter’s Square on Sunday, the globalist, environmentalist Pope Francis offered prayers for the success of the COP26 U.N. Climate Change Conference currently convening in Glasgow.
“Today, in Glasgow, in Scotland, the United Nations conference on climate change, COP26, begins,” the pope stated. “Let us pray so that the cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor might be heard,” and “that this meeting might provide efficacious responses, offering concrete hope to future generations.”
The pontiff went on to announce the inauguration of a photographic exhibition in St Peter’s Square, titled “Emotions to generate change – pushing the issue of care for creation at COP26 in Glasgow,” dedicated to the pope’s encyclical letter on the environment, “Laudato si.” The work was the joint effort of writer and director Lia Beltrami and young Muslim photographer Asaf Ud Daula, originally from Bangladesh. The exhibition was unveiled Sunday and will be open to visitors to Saint Peter’s Square through November 8.
Pope Francis, an activist for leftist goals like socialism and open borders, has been a vocal supporter of U.N. efforts to commit nations to lowering greenhouse gas emissions in the hope of curbing so-called “global warming.”
