The Green Patriarch (Documentary)

The Green Patriarch (Documentary)


His All Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew insists that we must take care of the environment, an insistence that has earned him the title, “The Green Patriarch.” The documentary above shows some of the Ecumenical Patriarch’s endeavors to protect the environment. Just a few minutes into the film, His All Holiness utters these striking, and memorable, words:

“To commit a crime against the world is a sin. For human beings to destroy the biological diversity of God’s creation, for human beings to contaminate the earth’s waters, its land, its air, and its life. All of these are sins.”
