world leaders will meet to create an agreement to protect the environment. In his encyclical leer, ‘Laudato si,’ Pope Francis states that “the natural environment is a collective good, the patrimony of all humanity and the responsibility of everyone.” We have been asked to pray for the success of the Conference during the weeks ahead through Dec. 8th. The following is just one prayer that has been suggested.
Prayer for the Earth
God of love, teach us to care for this world, our common home. Inspire government leaders as they gather in Paris:
*to listen and heed the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor;
*to be united in heart and mind in responding courageously;
*to seek the common good and protectt he beautiful early garden you have created for us, for all our brothers and sisters, for all generations to come. Amen
