Novena to St Francis Day Two Night

Please join us to pray the Novena to St Francis

Day two Night Sky

Second prayer: Night sky

“We praise you, Lord,

for Sister Moon and the Stars,

in the heavens you have made them

bright, precious and fair.” (St Francis of Assisi)

“We want the forest to remain quiet, the sky to remain clear, the evening darkness to really fall and for the stars to be seen.”

(Davi Kopenawa, spokesperson for the Yanomami people of Brazil)

Creator God,

your night sky offers rest and stillness,

yet we flood our cities with light.

Forgive us for our wasteful ways.

 

Brother Francis, you chose poverty not plenty,

walking lightly on the earth.

May we follow in your path

and reduce the trace we leave.

 St Francis, pray for us.
