Day Six Earth

“We praise you, Lord, for Sister Earth, who sustains us with her fruits, coloured flowers, and herbs.” (St Francis of Assisi)

“There will be a point when we will not have this richness. And then what will we do?”

(Yésica Patiachi Tayori, Harakbut indigenous people, Peru)

 

Creator God,

we grieve for our Amazon sisters and brothers

whose lands are wrecked by greed.

We take more from the earth than we need. Forgive us.

 

St Francis, joyful steward of creation,

from you we learn to live with less,

to give and not to take.

 

St Francis, pray for us.
