Francis of Assisi, Patron Saint of the Poor
Remember that when you leave this earth, you can take with you nothing that you have received – only what you have given: a full heart, enriched by honest service, love, sacrifice and courage. ~ St. Francis

“The Church that hears ‘both the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor’ cannot stay indifferent in front of the catastrophic consequences of the climate change that are unfairly affecting poor and vulnerable communities,” said Assisi Archbishop Domenico Sorrentino.”
And also. . .
God requires that we assist the animals, when they need our help. Each being (human or creature) has the same right of protection. ~ St. Francis
