Thousands of New Yorkers lined the streets to get a glimpse of Pope Francis and there were excited cheers from people everywhere he went. The message he brought us was one of love, unity, equality and acceptance.

He delivered a powerful speech to the United Nations General Assembly. He spoke about the abuse of power and about those more powerful countries that lend money to poorer countries with stringent measures that keep those countries in poverty. He spoke about those cast off by society who live on what is discarded by others and suffer the most from abuse of the environment.

He noted that the environment was not ours to abuse much less to destroy and touched on the topic of man creating weapons of mass destruction. “In wars and conflict there are individuals who weep, suffer and die,” he said. He did not stop there but also spoke about human trafficking, the sale of body parts and the sexual exploitation of little girls and boys. Every subject he touched had something to do with us as individuals and our environment. The thing I hope everyone who listened to that speech took note of is these words that ring so true -The real danger in the world comes from man – what are we going to do about it? Continue down the path of destruction, inflicting pain on one another or are we going to change?
