And whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to the one who is seated on the throne . . . they cast their crowns before the throne, singing, ‘You are worthy, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things, and by your will they existed and were created.
As Pope Frances has said: “I exhort everyone to see the world through the eyes of God the Creator: the earth is an environment to be safeguarded, a garden to be cultivated.” “God worked in Creation and gave us the responsibility to carry forward this task, not by destroying it, but by helping it grow, caring for it, being custodians, and helping it bear fruit”. Please prayerfully consider taking the St. Francis Pledge this Earth Day-April 22!!
