Care for Creation

Today we commemorate the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation.  In his message, Pope Francis, writes, “The annual World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation will offer individuals and communities a fitting opportunity to reaffirm their personal commitment to be stewards of creation, to thank God for the wonderful handiwork which He has entrusted to our care, and to implore His help for the protection of creation as well as His pardon for the sins committed against our world in which we live.”  Today begins a six week celebration of creation.  As we honor our earth this day may we all take the time and effort necessary to make a difference by showering our earth with care and respect.  We need to heed the call to care for our earth in new and intentional ways.  Remember our earth is God’s gift to us to treat with love, care and respect.
