Season of creation 2023

from September 1 to October 4 “Let justice and peace flow”

Dear brothers and sisters!

“Let Justice and Peace Flow” is the theme of this year’s ecumenical Season of Creation, inspired by the words of the prophet Amos: “Let justice flow on like a river, righteousness like a never-failing stream” (5:24).

The evocative image used by Amos speaks to us of what God desires. God wants justice to reign; it is as essential to our life as God’s children made in his likeness as water is essential for our physical survival. This justice must flow forth wherever it is needed, neither remaining hidden deep beneath the ground nor vanishing like water that evaporates before it can bring sustenance. God wants everyone to strive to be just in every situation, to live according to his laws and thus to enable life to flourish... (Message of Pope Francis for the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. 1st September 2023)

An appeal for prayers on the 1st September

On the occasion of the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, CA Associations all over the world, united in the International Forum of CA, are launching an appeal for prayers.

During these personal and communitarian prayer meetings we recommend the recitation of the Christian Prayer in union with creation found in the Encyclical Laudato si’ (246), with the magnificent hymn by Saint Francis (Laudato si’ 87)

IFCA is member  (Laudato si’ Movement)
