    Yesterday I read Pope Francis' encyclical letter “Praised Be” (Laudato Si) in which he said “to sense each creature singing the hymn of its existence is to live joyfully in God’s love and hope.” In the encyclical, the Pope writes, “We read in the Gospel that Jesus says of the birds of the air...
