14 May: Environment Novena, I

The Catholic Bishops of England & Wales and Scotland have invited Christians to join in a Novena – nine days of prayer – for our planet and for discernment of what we should be doing to care for it. Here is the first day’s post.

A thought from today’s extract from Pope Francis’s Laudato si’:

as channels of your love
for all the creatures of this earth”
Laudato Si’, 13; 246
