On Friday April 22, 2022, Earth Day will be celebrated, as desired by Pope Francis in his encyclical Laudato Si’.
To help us pursue the Common Good for our Common Home, Friar Nicholas ROMEO (Province of Our Lady of the Angels in the USA) created intercessions for Morning Prayer and Evening Prayer based on the encyclical.
Moving through the week, the prayers are directed to the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, and finally on Saturday to Mary Immaculate. The intercessions are available in the four languages of the Order, at:
“When we can see God reflected in all that exists, our hearts are moved to praise the Lord for all his creatures and to worship him in union with them” (Laudato Si’, 87).
Friar Michael LASKY, General Delegate for Justice, Peace and Integrity of Creation
