Pope backs Brazilian bishops’ Lenten campaign to protect biological diversity

Pope Francis has given his endorsement to the “Fraternity Campaign,” undertaken each year during Lent by the Brazilian bishops’ conference.

The theme of this year’s campaign is preservation of Brazil’s unique biological habitats. 

The Pope, in a message of support, remarks that Brazil boasts “a diversity of ecosystems of extraordinary beauty.” 

He says that they must be protected against “agrgression toward creation and the deterioration of nature.”
