Pope Francis just invited you to pray for creation – Global Catholic Climate Movement

This week, Pope Francis has instituted a new day of prayer and celebration for the Church entitled the “World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation,” to be celebrated on September 1 each year.

Expressing hope that all Christians can work together toward common goals, he calls this day “a precious opportunity to renew our personal participation in this vocation as custodians of creation, raising to God our thanks for the marvelous works that He has entrusted to our care…”

In conjunction with the World Day of Prayer, the Global Catholic Climate Movement is inviting all Catholics to celebrate the “Season of Creation” from September 1 until the Feast of St. Francis on October 4. The Season of Creation is an initiative following the example of other Christian denominations and the Catholic Bishops of the Philippines.
