The Church and the whole global community will celebrate the 5th anniversary of Laudato Si’ from May 16-24, 2020. As part of the American Province’s celebration, a special prayer and video has been prepared for Sisters, Associates, staff, and friends, with the hope that we will all mark this anniversary and listen again to Pope Francis’ urgent call to care for Earth as our common home.
Click here to download the prayer in PDF format. Give some thought to how you will use it, on your own, or with others, perhaps virtually, as the current situation allows. You may prefer to pray it all at once (taking about 30 minutes), or spread it throughout the anniversary week. Below, you will find the video.
There is a nobility in the duty to care for creation through little daily actions.
Pope Francis, Laudato Si’ (211)
