"The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders, and with all unrighteous deception among those who perish, because they did not receive the love of the truth, that they might be saved. And for this reason God will send them strong delusion, that they should believe the lie, that they all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness."  
2 Thessalonians 2: 9-12

Drawing dozens of mayors from major cities worldwide to discuss the link between slavery and climate change, this week's Vatican conference showed how secular leaders are responding to Pope Francis' lead in protecting the environment – and, more importantly, the vulnerable.

“The Church has a role to protect the vulnerable, and if we follow the words of the Pope, we actually bring into account those who create the suffering of others,” said Kevin Hyland, United Kingdom Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner and one of the speakers at the gathering.

In an interview with CNA, Hyland said the pontiff has shown his leadership in bringing together the themes of slavery and climate change, as demonstrated by his ability to draw together international leaders to confront the issue.

“Pope Francis talks about it in a way that people understand. He's talking about it in the terms of human lives: That fact that we are exploiting not just people now, but the future, and if we don't act now in this current time, we are destroying the world for the future generation.”  Catholic News Agency
