CWN Editor's Note: With the headline “A Fragile Planet,” the Vatican newspaper devoted the most prominent coverage in its February 8 edition to an award-winning photograph of a polar bear on an iceberg.

Describing the photograph as a “dramatic ‘icon’ of the rapidity of climate change,” the author of the unsigned article wrote that the “melting of the ice is now an epochal phenomenon and denotes all the fragility of ‘our common home.’”
