The following is offered as a suggested reflection for the final week of the Season of Creation for 2019. As Sisters and Associates of St. Francis we have over the years taken a stance on various social justice issues. Our stance on Care of Creation is one of these documents we try to live each day individually and corporately. Please join us this week during this season by using the prayer/reflection included below. This week we concentrate on Mother Earth and our role and responsibility to be healers of creation.
We pray in thanksgiving for Mother Earth in whom all life is rooted, Brother Sun whose energy radiates life, Sister Water who nurtures and revives us, and co-creatures with whom we live and for whom we are called to till and keep this garden. We ask that you help us to become healers of your beautiful creation.
What one healing thing can I do this week? What is stopping me from doing it?
“Do the impossible one step at a time”. Be aware of all the “single-use” plastic items that come your way this week. Choose one of those items to reuse or to do without.
