Celebrate Earth Day with Gratitude and Prayer


Earth Day is a movement that has given voice to an emerging consciousness of the unity of creation and the ‘new creation’ that is the resurrection of Jesus. The mutual love between God and God’s people calls us to love and care for one another and all of creation.


Praise Be to You

“The Earth, our home, is beginning to look more and more like an immense pile of filth,” Pope Francis wrote in his encyclical that highlights the climate change crisis. He blames consumerism, overconsumption, and dependence on fossil fuels for this unprecedented destruction of ecosystems, and warns that there will be serious consequence for all of us if we do not take action quickly. The most vulnerable victims, he says, are the world’s poorest people, who are being dislocated and disregarded.

We ask that you take action and pray on Earth Day and every day as the Maryknoll Sisters work to safeguard the gift of creation that our Creator has entrusted us.
