“We see these natural tragedies, which are the earth’s response to our maltreatment,” the pope said.

Francis said the Lord would be so disappointed if anyone asked him his view on what is happening to the world.

The man of God maintained that human beings are responsible for the decadence being experienced by mother nature at the moment.

The 83-year-old leader urged the youths to take initiative and be at the forefront of fighting crimes against mother nature and try teaching people how the earth is the future.

“Take to the streets to teach us what is obvious, that is, that there will be no future for us if we destroy the environment that sustains us,” he added.

The pontiff reminded people that though God is mighty, merciful and ever forgiving, nature is the complete opposite.

To him, if people fail to care for their environment, it will, in turn, come back to bite them.

“Saying the earth was not an endless deposit of resources to exploit. We have sinned against the Earth, against our neighbour and, in the end, against the creator,” Francis concluded.

As previously reported, Francis recovered from a flu after exhibiting signs of COVID-19.

He was seen coughing during mass and appeared to be sickly following his ailment.
