1st September – Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation

pope-francis-2017

1st September is the day of Prayer for the Care of Creation and Pope Francis has just announced a joint appeal with the  Ecumenical Patriarch of Constantinople, Bartholomew I,  for the world to work together on this special day.

Pope Francis said: “We invite everyone to adopt a respectful and responsible attitude toward Creation”.

“We also appeal,” the Holy Father added, “to those who have influential roles, to listen to the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor who suffer most from ecological imbalances.”

What a wonderful message!  AIA member organisation, Catholic Concern for Animals endorses it fully and will take the message to its annual retreat which begins on Monday 4th September at Holland House.
