Patriarch Bartholomew I of Constantinople on the World as a Sacrament

Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I of Constantinople

We are treating our planet in an inhuman, godless manner precisely because we fail to see it as a gift inherited from above. Our original sin with regard to the natural environment lies in our refusal to accept the world as a sacrament of communion, as a way of sharing with God and neighbour on a global scale. It is our humble conviction that divine and human meet in the slightest detail contained in the seamless garment of God’s creation, in the last speck of dust.

* The Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople
