Rome2015The Brahma Kumaris Environment Initiative was invited to Rome by Greenfaith to repond to the Pope who issued his new encyclical called Laudato Si (Praise be to you) which was on environmental issues, climate change and people's spiritual duty to look after the planet.  On Sunday 28th June, the gathering organised a march "One Earth, One Human Family" through Rome where thousands of people joined in holding banners and praising Planet Earth and the Pope's initiative.  The march ended in St. Peter's Square where the Pope addressed the group giving his best wishes.
