ROME - On Thursday top Vatican officials hailed Swedish teen Greta Thunberg, recently named TIME Magazines Person of the Year for her environmental advocacy, as a great witness of Church teaching on care for creation and the human person.
Speaking to reporters at the Dec. 12 publication of Pope Franciss message for the 2020 World Day of Peace, celebrated on Jan. 1 each year, Cardinal Peter Turkson, prefect of the Vatican office for Integral Human Development, called Thunberg a great witness to what the Church teaches on the care of the environment and the care of the person.
What is her objective? Skipping school for a future, a future that cant be guaranteed because there is no care for the environment, he said, adding that in many cases, there is a complete lack of coherence between the international policies on the environment and what children are told.
Asked whether she was a model of the ecological conversion Francis calls for in the message, Turkson said that model was not the right word, but insisted that her activism brings attention to the Churchs insistence that attention to the poor and society also coincide with care for the environment, the common home.
Its a coherence with the Churchs teaching, he said, adding that care of the environment is also a matter of faith.

The “great WITLESS” can blow me.
and the pope’s as crazy as she is.
A mentally ill 16-year old leads the Vatican.
What could possibly go wrong?
Pretty soon they’ll make her a saint.
I dont recognize my Church.
I’d be willing to bet that she despises Christianity. But the Pope probably feels the same way.
Greta Thunberg has mental health issues.....sounds like the Vatican’s exploting her like the Demorats do children.
A marketing gimmick. An organ grinder’s monkey with a tin cup.
Everywhere you look its just sickness. Now its even the pope.
Do the Hindus consider her a holy cow?
Absolutely. And she’s so cute in her Antifa shirt.
Yup, does anyone give a $h1t what this dopey Pope thinks about anything? I betcha he has a special fondness for little boys too.
Thunberg is becoming St.Joan of Bark
By the Blather, Bun and Holy Boast of the Vatican.
It will draw socialists back to the church which works to subvert national borders all over the world to illegal immigration.
The Vatican needs to be popular , you see, to stem the exodus of families who do not want to expose their children to the tender mercies of un-apprehended holy pedophiles.
All can bow and curtsy around the beginning canonization of St. Joan of Bark, a veritable anger filled, hate filled stand in for the victim character of William Peter Blatty’s block buster horror movie, “The Exorcist”.
Her demonic possession is a foregone conclusion to exhort the masses towards socialism everywhere, so that the freedoms and liberties of nations can become subservient in the minutest details of everyday life because of climate change.
So who wants to be first to drink from the now sacred chalice of Saint Joan of Bark?
Yes, I trust the word of the people who crucified Christ and then turned his worship into the oldest shakedown of humanity in history. Seems as though the money changing tables have a Catholic altar to me.
Sorry to say that to the Catholics here - I was Episcopal all my life so Ive got zero room to talk, but Catholicism has gone way over the cliff, and as long as you have that batshit crazy Pope nothing will get better. Much worse.
And the world is flat.......
