The Laudato Si’ Action Platform, the Economy of Francis, the Global Compact on Education, and COP26 decisions bring hope and are central to the creation of a new system of life, one that meets the need to respond to the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor. Let us remain determined to educate, advocate and act, nurturing hope and strengthening our commitment to care for all life on Earth, our common home.
Monthly Solidarity Prayer
The cry of the earth and the cry of the poor reaches God’s heart and breaks open our hearts, challenging us to say “no” to violence that plagues our world and “yes” to human dignity and respect for the integrity of creation. We ought to confront our silence, complicity and indifference with a zeal for peace and nonviolence. “All of you, hear the humble appeal of the Successor of Peter who cries out: today too… peace remains possible. And if peace is possible, it is also a duty!”
God loves and cares for everyone, but has a special concern for children who are not able to express their suffering and usually they need others’ help to get out of their difficult situations. Let us ask Mary to pray with us so that we may see and feel the sufferings of women and children and respond to their needs.
