Thousands march in Rome to show support for Pope Francis' eco-encyclical

Religious leaders from across the globe led a “Many Faiths -- One Planet” march to the Vatican on Sunday to show their support of Pope Francis’ groundbreaking environmental encyclical.

Organizers estimated a crowd of 5,000 people reached St. Peter’s Square to celebrate the pontiff’s tough stance on climate change, after parading through Rome under a canopy of painted banners. The march was endorsed by the United Nations and a number of Catholic organizations, including Catholic Action and the Global Catholic Climate Movement
