World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation

World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation

Pope Francis has declared September 1 to be World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. He draws particular attention to the care of all creation in his most recent encyclical, Laudato Si’- Praise be to you, released in May. In writing this document he strongly adds the faith perspective to the ongoing conversation regarding our environment challenges.

“If the simple fact of being human moves people to care for the environment of which they are a part, Christians in their turn realize that their responsibility within creation, and their duty towards nature and the Creator, are an essential part of their faith.” (LS # 64)
