Iris3“As one called to till and look after the garden of the world (cf. Gen 2:15), man has a specific responsibility towards the environment in which he lives, towards the creation which God has put at the service of his dignity, of his life…when it comes to the Natural World, we are subject not only to the biological laws but also to moral ones, which cannot be violated with impunity.”  Saint John Paul II, Gospel of Life — Evangelium Vitae, 1995
