On October 4, 2019 in the Vatican Gardens, Pope Francis presided over the opening ceremony for the upcoming Pan-Amazon Synod of Bishops. Indians from the Amazon offered prayers and praises to the earth during a ceremony that appeared more pagan than Christian.
Wood carvings, candles, clay pots, coconuts, fruits and other objects representing the Amazon Jungle were placed on the ground while Roman Catholics and indigenous people formed a circled and knelt down and bowed before them – not to Christ!
Nature-worship, religious mysticism and radical environmentalism is becoming the new belief system for western civilization. This is what the Vatican is endorsing. They are confusing God with ecology.
