Today we share Pope Francis call for awareness and action from every human being. Pope Francis released his first encyclical and in it the pontiff focuses on climate change and global inequality.

Francis said the poor stand to suffer the most from extreme weather events that are already regularly wreaking havoc across the planet.

The encyclical closes with two prayers. In the first one, “A prayer for our earth,” Francis implores that we “Bring healing to our lives / that we may protect the world and not prey on it / that we may sow beauty / not pollution and destruction.”

 

Prayer for our Earth

 

Almighty Lord,

you are present throughout the whole universe

and in the smallest of your creatures,

You who surround with your tenderness

all that exists,

pour into us the strength of your love

so that we take care

of life and beauty.

Flood us with peace,

so that we live as brothers and sisters

without harming anyone.

Father of the poor,

help us to redeem the abandoned

and forgotten in this land

that are so worthy in your eyes.

Heal our lives,

so that we protect the world

and not plunder it,

so that we sow beauty

and not destruction and pollution.

Touch the hearts

of those who seek only benefits

at the expense of the poor and of the earth.

Teach us to discover the value of everything,

to contemplate with amazement,

to recognize that we are deeply united

with all creatures

on our way to your infinite light.

Thank you because you are with us every day.

Support us, please, in our struggle

for justice, love and peace.

 

Lord God, One and Three,

 

beautiful community of infinite love,

teach us to contemplate

the beauty of the universe,

where everything is about you.

Awaken our praise and our gratitude

for all that you have created.

Give us the grace to feel intimately united

with all that exists.

God of love, show us our place

in this world

as instruments of your love

for all beings of this earth,

because not one of them is forgotten by you.

Illumine the masters of power and money

so that they do not fall into sin of indifference,

love the common good, promote the weak,

and take care of the world we inhabit.

The poor and the earth are crying:

Lord, take us with your power and your light,

to protect all life,

for a better future,

so that comes your kingdom

of justice, of peace, of love and beauty.

Praised be!

Amen.
