Pope wants action on natural disasters

Pope Francis reiterated his appeal for the world to do more to protect the environment, stressing the importance this can have in reducing the risk and impact of natural disasters.
“On 13 October, we observe the international day for the reduction of natural disasters,” the pope said during his weekly general audience. “I renew my heartfelt appeal for the safeguarding of creation through increasingly careful protection and care for the environment. I therefore encourage institutions and those who hold public and social responsibility increasingly to promote a culture that has the aim of reducing exposure to risks and to natural disasters.
“May concrete actions, aimed at the study and defense of the common home, progressively reduce the risks for the most vulnerable populations.”
The pope has already made the theological connection between the protection of creation and Sunday observance. When massive natural disasters become so prevalent that most Christians view them as God’s judgments or punishments on the human race, Sunday observance laws, as predicted, will arise to get the nations back to God. They will be required to enforce worship of the papal Sunday.
