Day of Creation and CCA Retreat

Pope Francis 2017

 

September 1st is the day of Prayer for the Care of Creation and I am delighted that 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 and CCA endorses it fully and will take the message into the CCA Annual Retreat which begins on Monday 4th September at Holland House.
