In his encyclical Laudato Si’, Pope Francis makes it clear that we have a moral obligation to care for the Earth. The Laudato Si’ Action Platform is a new  initiative by the Holy See calling all sectors of the Church, including families, parishes, and schools, to participate in this crucial work.

One area of focus for the Action Platform is ecological spirituality. We could start by praying this prayer from Laudato Si’:
All powerful God, you are present in the universe and in the smallest of your creatures.
You embrace with your tenderness all that exists.
Pour out upon us the power of your love, that we may protect life and beauty.
Fill us with your peace, that we may live as brothers and sisters, harming no one.
