“All powerful God, you are present in the whole universe and in the smallest of your creatures…help us to rescue the abandoned and forgotten of this earth…that we may sow beauty, not pollution and destruction…teach us to discover the worth of each thing as we journey towards your infinite light.  We thank you for being with us each day.  Encourage us in our struggle for justice, love and peace.”

This prayer is for everyone

–Excerpt from Pope Francis’ Encyclical ‘Laudato Si’
