Prayers for today
Prayer to celebrate the 5th anniversary of Laudato Si
Laudato Si 'teaches us that this world is not a place for people to own and exploit, but a place for people to live and collaborate creatively with all species.
Thank you, God, for the wonderful gift, the world You have given to us
Mother Nature cries out in her distress.
Lord, please open our hearts so that we can hear this cry of anguish and henceforth live more harmoniously with nature, respecting it as we respect our own life.
God our Father, We praise you for the beauty of creation.
We are truly sorry for our consumerism and wastefulness.
Grant us the wisdom to care for the Earth.
Breathe your Holy Spirit on us; help us to know how to respect and to protect all the things that you have made for us.
We ask this through Jesus Christ.
