Pray With Us! Laudato Si Reflections for Catholic Sisters Week
For Catholic Sisters Week, the Sisters of the Humility of Mary will be focusing on the Laudato Sí Action Platform which has seven goals to provide guidance on urgent and immediate actions for the care of our common home, Earth. This is an initiative of the Vatican Dicastery for Promoting Integral Human Development. It is inspired by Pope Francis’ 2015 encyclical Laudato Sí and offers ways for the Church to address the ecological crisis.
During Catholic Sisters Week, March 8-14, the sisters will be praying each day for one of the seven goals and we invite you to pray along with us. These reflections were created by our Laudato Sí Committee and include sections of the HM Litany of Hope and Promise (Chapter 2021) and a prayer by Sr. Linda Valasik. In addition, sisters will be using a Lenten Resource with practical suggestions inspired by Fr. Terrence Moran with the layout by Donna Sartor. This resource is distributed by the Office of Peace, Justice and Ecological Integrity of the Sisters of Charity of Saint Elizabeth, Convent Station, New York.
