IFCA participated in the Laudato Sì week (16-24 May 2020) as an international partner with an initiative on 20 May “Guardians of the work of God“
With great joy we welcomed the proposal of Pope Francis for the special anniversary of the Laudato si 24 May 2020-2021.
Thanks to the initiative of the Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development, the “Laudato Si’ Week” we have just celebrated will blossom into a special Year of the anniversary of Laudato Si’, a special year to reflect on the Encyclical, from 24 May this year until 24 May next year. I invite all people of good will to participate, in order to take care of our common home and our most fragile brothers and sisters. The prayer dedicated to this Year will be published on the site. It will be beautiful to pray it.

“Common Prayer for Earth and for Humanity”
Creator of Heaven, Earth, and all therein contained.
Open our minds and touch our hearts,
so that we can be part of Creation, your gift.
Be present to those in need in these difficult times, especially the poorest and most vulnerable.
Help us to show creative solidarity as we confront the consequences of the global pandemic.
Make us courageous in embracing the changes required to seek the common good.
Now more than ever, may we all feel interconnected and interdependent.
Enable us to succeed in listening and responding to the cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor.
May their current sufferings become the birth-pangs of a more fraternal and sustainable world.
We pray through Christ our Lord, under the loving gaze of Mary Help of Christians.
