Apparently, Pope Francis has stated that he is writing a sequel to "Laudato Si". That was his encyclical that encouraged us to . . . ummmm . . . well . . . I guess it encouraged us to stop throwing our trash on the ground. Do not get me wrong, I am big on being godly stewards of the world God has given us. The problem is, we have far more serious issues that we need guidance on from the Holy Father. Does he really think recycling plastic is more important than dealing with liturgical abuse, sodomite clergymen, and the plague of doctrinal ignorance that has infected the majority of Catholics today?
And now, he is going to spend some more time to write about hugging trees and less time on the vital and dire needs of the Church. The environment of Earth does matter, but the environment of the Holy Bride of Christ is being trashed and that is what needs his attention more than anything else right now! This feels like "Nero fiddling while Rome is burning". Dear Holy Father, please hear your people's cries. As I write, a passage of Scripture comes to mind (and I pray it does not apply to our situation as much as it seems to).
“Woe to the shepherds who destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture!” says the Lord. Therefore thus says the Lord, the God of Israel, concerning the shepherds who care for my people: “You have scattered my flock, and have driven them away, and you have not attended to them. Behold, I will attend to you for your evil doings, says the Lord. Then I will gather the remnant of my flock out of all the countries where I have driven them, and I will bring them back to their fold, and they shall be fruitful and multiply. I will set shepherds over them who will care for them, and they shall fear no more, nor be dismayed, neither shall any be missing, says the Lord" (Jeremiah 23:1-4).
