Take a moment to reflect on the photo.


Come and see the works of God.

— Psalm 66:5


Praise be to you, my Lord, through all your creatures,

Laudato Si’, Mi Signore
especially through my Brother Sun,
through Sister Moon and the stars,
through Brother Wind,
and through the air, cloudy and serene,
and every kind of weather.

Praised be You, my Lord, through Sister Water,
through Brother Fire,
through Sister Mother Earth,
who sustains us, producing
varied fruits with colored flowers and herbs.

Praise be to you, my Lord, through all your creatures,
Laudato Si’, Mi Signore

— St. Francis of Assisi in “Canticle of the Creatures,” written in 1225


Hear both the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor
 — Pope Francis, Laudato Si’


Special thanks for all creatures great and small.

This is the final reflection in this series.

This Lent the Ecological Sustainability Committee offers these daily reflections. These readings invite us to “Deepen our spirituality” (Directive 1) through contemplation on creation, Scripture, images, poetry and Laudato Si’. The reflections speak of a spirituality that brings us and others closer to God through the gifts and wonders of creation. That spirituality motivates us “to intensify efforts across the congregation to address the destruction of natural resources and the ecological and environmental crisis.” (Directive 4b)

Let's stay in touch.
