Pope Francis has announced today, September 1, as the “World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation,” and by doing so has highlighted one of the most important issues of our time and for time to come. Truly, the more seriously we take our stewardship of this world and the people and all other beings that dwell upon it, the better our present and future will be – and the more reflective of God’s love.

There are many ways to pray. Set prayers, of course, that have already been written, and prayers stemming from the words in our hearts and on our lips. But even more crucial are the prayers we “utter” through our actions. That is the focus I will strive to have today, and I encourage others to do so, too. Each step we take to “care for creation,” each action that respects life, cherishes God’s world, and forwards goodness and tender reverence for His creation is a mighty powerful prayer!

Peace,

Maureen
