The inspiration for this image is a canticle by Saint Francis of Assisi which informs Pope Francis' encyclical ' Laudato Si'. In the encyclical , when talking about the environmental degradation of the earth, he mentions that the cry of the earth is also the cry of the poor.In thinking about this I feel that the poorest and most vulnerable of persons, from the human embryo, the desperately poor and the elderly, have been denied by the rich and powerful minority, not only their Father in heaven but their Mother Earth.
