On the occasion of the third World Day of Prayer for Creation: Pope Francis published a joint message with the Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew inviting everybody to assume a respectful attitude and to listen to the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor who suffer the most from ecological imbalances.
According to Pope Francis, “The annual World Day of prayer for the Care of Creation offers to individual believers and to the community a precious opportunity to renew our personal participation in this vocation as custodians of creation, raising to God our thanks for the marvelous works that He has entrusted to our care, invoking his help for the protection of creation and his mercy for the sins committed against the world in which we live.”
