September 1: World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation

United with the Orthodox churches, the Roman Catholic church now marks this day in the calendar in a particular way, as the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation.  Pope Francis’s message for today invites us to “show mercy to our common home.”  I wonder what shape that will take in our lives and the lives of our worshiping communities?

  1. I believe today is a ferial day on the liturgical calendar? What prayer options would be appropriate for today to mark mercy and care for creation?
