Vatican City, 1 September 2014 (VIS) – After the Marian prayer, the Pope greeted the many pilgrims gathered in St. Peter's Square, and remarked that on Monday 1 September the Day for the Protection of Creation will be held in Italy. Organised by the Italian Episcopal Conference, the theme this year will be “educating for the protection of creation, for the health of our country and city”.

Francis underlined the importance of the issue and launched an appeal for “strength and commitment on the part of all – institutions, associations and citizens – so that the life and health of people may be protected, also respecting the environment and nature”.

He also addressed a special greeting to the Catholic members of parliament gathered in their fifth international meeting, encouraging them to “live the delicate role of representatives of the people in conformity with Gospel values”.
