Gifts of Earth

Reflect

We need not only appreciate the gifts of earth, water, and air, but learn to care for them. If we simply fear climate change and planetary destruction, it freezes our creativity. But the good news is that many solutions are already in place and much practical work lies ahead. Fatalism paralyzes; hope energizes.


Pray

Creator God, help us find your signature
i
n sky and sea, field and forest.
Teach us how to care for your creation.


Act

Reflect on each phrase of St. Francis’ “Canticle of the Sun.” Walk outside, expressing gratitude for each creature and for the sun. If that’s impossible, reflect gratefully indoors.
