GENERAL AUDIENCE 26th August 2015
Next Tuesday, 1 September, we will celebrate the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. In the communion of prayer with our Orthodox brothers and sisters and with all people of good will, we would like to offer our contribution to overcoming the ecological crisis that humanity is enduring.
Throughout the world, various local ecclesiastical realities have planned appropriate initiatives of prayer and reflection, so as to render this Day a propitious moment for the assuming of coherent lifestyles.
With the bishops, priests, consecrated people and lay faithful of the Roman Curia, we will meet in St Peter’s Basilica at 5 pm for the Liturgy of the Word, to which I invite the participation of Romans, pilgrims and those who wish to come.
