As a rule, I am not fond of religions and of "holy" people wearing flowing robes. However, I do respect individuals who rise above dogmas and genuinely work for the common good of the field.
One such man is Pope Francis. Since his appointment I have watched this good man reach out to people all over the world irrespective of their religious denomination and social status. I note that every time I hear about Pope Francis in the news I find him shaping up the world of greed, corruption and cruelty.
Many people, especially poor people, love him because the see in him honesty. integrity, and a child like faith in the Creator--now THAT I absolutely love.
Today my teachers caused me to stumble upon his latest brave act of defiance. I am referring to his Encyclical Letter "Laudato Si'. It is just as well that my guides caused me to find this letter, because the news story was so tiny and so carefully buried in a mass of trivia, that even someone deliberately looking for it would have missed it.
I have no doubt the media will ignore this tremendous contribution and that leaders of governments will do all they can to dismiss it -- even ridicule it. I see evidence of that as I type this message.

When I started reading the letter I immediately recognised it to be a direct message from Higher Intelligence. The words, the energy behind these words and the emotions it triggered have a signature that only the Creator is able to deliver. My teachers have trained me well on how to distinguish messages from the Creator from common pompous and insincere religious trash.
I urge all of my subscribers to read the full Pope's Francis Encyclical Letter "Laudato Si". All subscribers of my work are aware that the Creator speaks through all people of good heart--and Pope Francis has proven to be a true servant of the Most High.
I ask all of you to send him your thoughts of love, and to ask Higher Intelligence to protect him. This man has shaped up to the world of corruption, greed and selfishness and like all other good people on this planet he has made himself a target for reprisal.
I have reprinted below the excerpts that I love about Pope Francis' letter. You can read the full letter by clicking on this link.
Praise be to you, my Lord, through
… "our Sister, Mother Earth, who sustains and governs us, and who produces various fruit with coloured flowers and herbs"…
… This sister now cries out to us because of the harm we have inflicted on her by our irresponsible use and abuse of the goods with which God has endowed her.
We have come to see ourselves as her lords and masters, entitled to plunder her at will.
The violence present in our hearts, wounded by sin, is also reflected in the symptoms of sickness evident in the soil, in the water, in the air and in all forms of life.
This is why the earth herself, burdened and laid waste, is among the most abandoned and maltreated of our poor; she "groans in travail"…
… We have forgotten that we ourselves are dust of the earth ...
… our very bodies are made up of her elements, we breathe her air and we receive life and refreshment from her waters …
… The current global situation engenders a feeling of instability and uncertainty, which in turn becomes "a seedbed for collective selfishness" …
… When people become self-centred and selfenclosed, their greed increases.
The emptier a person's heart is, the more he or she needs things to buy, own and consume. It becomes almost impossible to accept the limits imposed by reality…
… We know how unsustainable is the behaviour of those who
constantly consume and destroy, while others are not yet able to live in a way worthy of their human dignity …
… Many things have to change course, but it is we human beings above all who need to change.
We lack an awareness of our common origin, of our mutual belonging, and of a future to be shared with everyone.
… In this horizon, a genuine sense of the common good also disappears.
As these attitudes become more widespread, social norms are respected only to the extent that they do not clash with personal needs.
So our concern cannot be limited merely to the threat of extreme weather events, but must also extend to the catastrophic consequences of social unrest.
Obsession with a consumerist lifestyle, above all when few people are capable of maintaining it, can only lead to violence and mutual destruction …
Yet all is not lost.
Human beings, while capable of the worst, are also capable of rising above themselves, choosing again what is good, and making a new start, despite their mental and social conditioning.
We are able to take an honest look at ourselves, to acknowledge our deep dissatisfaction, and to embark on new paths to authentic freedom.
No system can completely suppress our openness to what is good, true and beautiful, or our God-given ability to respond to
his grace at work deep in our hearts.
I appeal to everyone throughout the world not to forget this dignity which is ours. No one has the right to take it from us.
