    • September 1st
      World Day of Prayer
      for the Care of Creation

      Pope Francis has instituted a new day of prayer and celebration for the Church entitled the “World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation,” to be celebrated on Sept. 1 each year.

      The day will be an opportunity to reaffirm in Christians their vocation as stewards of God’s creation, to recognize their gratitude for God’s earthly gifts and to pray for the protection of the environment and pardon from sins against it, the Pope said.

      A Prayer for Our Earth

      (from Laudato Si’)

      All-powerful God, you are present in the whole universe and
      in the smallest of your creatures.

      You embrace with your tenderness all that exists.

      Pour out upon us the power of your love, that we may protect life and beauty.

      Fill us with peace, that we may live as brothers and sisters, harming no one.

      O God of the poor, help us to rescue the abandoned and forgotten of this earth,
      so precious in your eyes.

      Bring healing to our lives,
      That we may protect the world and not prey on it,
      that we may sow beauty, not pollution and destruction.

      Touch the hearts of those who look only for gain
      at the expense of the poor and the earth.

      Teach us to discover the worth of each thing,
      to be filled with awe and contemplation,
      to recognize that we are profoundly united with every creature
      as we journey towards your infinite light.

      We thank you for being with us each day.

      Encourage us, we pray, in our struggle for justice, love and peace.
