Laudato Si: 217. Pope Francis 

So what they all need is an “ecological conversion”, whereby the effects of their encounter with Jesus Christ become evident in their relationship with the world around them. Living our vocation to be protectors of God's handiwork is essential to a life of virtue; it is not an optional or a secondary aspect of our Christian experience.



A brief meditation:

We are invited to a conversion.

Comprehensive Environmental Respect is a question of Faith. 

Let's re-read the encyclical LAUDATO SI

Let's take notes as we read 

And why not offer it as a gift to friends? 

CANTICLE OF THE CREATURES of Saint Francis of Assisi 


Most high, all powerful, all good Lord!
 All praise is Yours, all glory, all honor, and all blessing.

To You, alone, Most High, do they belong.
 No mortal lips are worthy to pronounce Your name.

Be praised, my Lord, through all Your creatures,
especially through my lord Brother Sun,
who brings the day; and You give light through him.
And he is beautiful and radiant in all his splendor!
 Of You, Most High, he bears the likeness.

Be praised, my Lord, through Sister Moon and the stars;
 in the heavens You have made them bright, precious and beautiful.

Be praised, my Lord, through Brothers Wind and Air,
and clouds and storms, and all the weather,
 through which You give Your creatures sustenance.

Be praised, my Lord, through Sister Water;
 she is very useful, and humble, and precious, and pure.

Be praised, my Lord, through Brother Fire,
through whom You brighten the night.
 He is beautiful and cheerful, and powerful and strong.

Be praised, my Lord, through our sister Mother Earth,
who feeds us and rules us,
 and produces various fruits with colored flowers and herbs.

Be praised, my Lord, through those who forgive for love of You;
 through those who endure sickness and trial.

Happy those who endure in peace,
 for by You, Most High, they will be crowned.

Be praised, my Lord, through our sister Bodily Death,
from whose embrace no living person can escape.
Woe to those who die in mortal sin!
Happy those she finds doing Your most holy will.
 The second death can do no harm to them.

Praise and bless my Lord, and give thanks,
 and serve Him with great humility.




A Prayer for our Earth By Pope Francis



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. 


Pope Francis published this prayer in his Laudato Si' encyclical, and is meant for sharing with all who believe in a God who is the all-powerful Creator.


Take a moment to treasure up all these things and ponder them in your heart (cf Luke 2,19)
