Today marks the beginning of the second annual KAIROS Climate Action Month. This year’s Climate Action Month is marked by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has laid bare the interconnectedness of the global economic and ecological crises. In a post-pandemic recovery, we call on our leaders to act boldly to ensure the integrity of our planet, and to uphold basic human rights and the dignity of all peoples. This year, our actions during September are part of a growing movement for a just recovery.
TODAY’S ACTION is to pray for Creation. September 1 is the World Day of Prayer for Creation, so take a moment of reflection today and pray. We’ve provided two options below, but you are welcome to use one familiar to you or your own intercession.

A prayer by Roma De Robertis, Sisters of Charity of the Immaculate Conception (SCIC)
Blessed are You, God alive in Earth and Cosmos!
Welcoming this Season of Creation,
we celebrate your generosity,
as late summer ripens to early autumn.
All your creatures reveal your beauty, truth and wisdom.
We give thanks for flourishing fields, bringing forth rich harvest,
colourful gardens, attracting precious pollinators.
In every season, You give us what we need.
Eagerly, your Spirit nourishes us
to receive and share
loving kindness and compassion.
Forgive our carelessness, causing Earth’s distress,
with loss of many species.
In a time of pandemic,
guide us to participate in your call to transformation.
Awaken us to walk lightly on the land,
seeding integrity ... cultivating justice ...
creating a climate of equality and peace.
Gratefully, we pray in the name of Jesus,
who calls us to grow, making all things new.
