Water Access Church Teaching

Church Teaching

Without water, life is threatened, therefore the right to safe drinking water is a universal and inalienable right.

The Compendium of Social Doctrine of the Catholic Church

If you want to cultivate peace, protect creation… Man’s inhumanity to man has given rise to numerous threats to peace… Yet no less troubling are the threats arising from the neglect – if not downright misuse – of the earth and the natural goods that God has given us…Can we remain indifferent before the problems associated with such realities as climate change… attention also needs to be paid to the world-wide problem of water and to the global water cycle system, which is of prime importance for life on earth and whose stability could be seriously jeopardized by climate change.

Pope Benedict XVI
