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. These will change each week during the Season of Creation for 2019.
PRAY: Our Corporate Stance on Care of Creation
Following the example of Francis and Clare of Assisi, we, the Oldenburg Franciscan Sisters, humbly acknowledge that we are sisters of all creation. With awe and gratitude we celebrate the mystery of God’s loving presence in the Universe. We acknowledge that we are of Earth, deeply connected to all life, ever nurtured and sustained by Earth’s abundant gifts.
Faithful to our Franciscan heritage, we assume personal and communal responsibility for honoring and protecting the natural world in our care, choosing to value all as sacred. We commit to making Earth a priority in our decisions, to living lightly on Earth, to using resources responsibly, and to contributing to the sustainability of Earth to generations to come. – Proclaimed 2008-
Each day reflect on a section of the above.
Spread the word. Tell one or more person(s) this week about what you reflected upon in the above stance toward the care of creation.
