“[W]hen our hearts are authentically open to universal communion, [a] sense of fraternity excludes nothing and no one. It follows that our indifference or cruelty towards fellow creatures of this world sooner or later affects the treatment we mete out to other human beings.

Every act of cruelty towards any creature is ‘contrary to human dignity’… ~Laudato Si’ 92
