Be praised, my Lord, through Brothers Wind and Air, and clouds and storms, and all the weather, through which you give your creatures sustenance. Be praised, My Lord, through Sister Water; she is very useful, and humble, and precious, and pure. Be praised, my Lord, through Brother Fire, through whom you brighten the night.

  • Choose three statements ... We should only look after the environment because it has instrumental value for human beings. All sentient beings, including animals, have intrinsic value, but we can treat plants, water and land the way we want.
