JM Prayer Focus: Care of Creation

 

We should not despair. With God’s love to guide us, we can replace irresponsibility with attention and problem-making with problem-solving.

Zimbabwe 2017

Ponder

Can I overcome my own fear and indifference to work for change? How can I get started? Do I believe in God’s belief in me?

Pray

God of creation, help me to adopt St. Francis of Assisi’s lavish and rapturous praise of you and the world you have made!

(Walking in praise with Pope Francis -Twenty Third Publications)

Be praised, my Lord,
For all your creatures,
And first for brother sun,
Who makes the day bright and luminous.

He is beautiful and radiant
With great splendour
He is the image of You,
Most high.

Be praised, my Lord,
For sister moon and the stars.
You placed them in the sky,

Let us embrace Pope Francis’ profound message from Laudato Si-Praised be!

Final words of wisdom:

“How God and the devil struggle, and the battlefield is the human heart”. (Fyodor M. Dostoyevsky, The Brothers Karamazov)
