Reconciliation with Creation

Laudato Si’ Week 2022, from May 22-29  (the 7th anniversary of Pope Francis’ landmark encyclical on creation care) offers the opportunity to unite  globally in listening and responding together ‘to the cry of creation’.  It’s time for a ‘Reconciliation with Creation’.  We need to seize it  as a vital opportunity to  intensify our efforts through the dynamic Laudato Si’ Action Platform, walking the “Synodal” path.

Prayer for the grace of
conversion

In my desire for reconciliation
with creation, I ask God for
forgiveness and the grace
of ecological conversion.

I acknowledge the ways in
which I personally have chosen
convenience, selfishness, and
greed over ecological and social
justice.

I also acknowledge
the ways structures, patterns,
and cultures of sin impact
my life, the lives of people on
the margins and the earth.

Through my recognition of
where I have fallen short in
caring for creation and my
brothers and sisters, and
through God’s mercy,

I pray for
a conversion of heart to amend
my ways.

I seek through my
prayer and actions to reconcile
myself with God, creation and
humanity.
