Season of Creation Resources

During this 2020 Season of Creation (Sept. 1- Oct. 4), take some time to read, and reflect on these Season of Creation resources! Provided by the JPIC office.

Reflect on Pope Francis’ Message for the World Day of Prayer for Creation: “Let us all rejoice that our loving Creator sustains our humble efforts to care for the earth, which is also God’s home where his Word ‘became flesh and lived among us’ (Jn 1:14) and which is constantly being renewed by the outpouring of the Holy Spirit.”

In the video message accompanying his prayer intention for September, Pope Francis asks everyone to pray that we learn to respect the planet’s resources.
