Pope Francis’ Prayer for Our Earth

Pope Francis’ Prayer for Our EarthRome-18-03-2015-18

All-powerful God, you are present in the whole universe and in the smallest of your creatures.

You embrace with your tenderness all that exists.

Pour out upon us the power of your love, that we may protect life and beauty.

Fill us with peace that we may live as brothers and sisters, harming no one.

O God of the poor, help us to rescue the abandoned and forgotten of this earth, so precious in your eyes.

Bring healing to our lives, that we may protect the world and not prey on it, that we may sow beauty, not pollution and destruction.

Touch the hearts of those who look only for gain at the expense of the poor and the earth.

Teach us to discover the worth of each thing, to be filled with awe and contemplation, to recognize that we are profoundly united with every creature as we journey towards your infinite light.

We thank you for being with us each day.

Encourage us, we pray, in our struggle for justice, love and peace.

General Audience of Pope Francis at the Vatican – March 18, 2015

Rome-18-03-2015-07The participants of the session for Secretaries and Archivists were given an opportunity to see Pope Francis at the Vatican for the General Audience on Wednesday morning the 18th March. As usual, a large crowd invaded the square in the hope to see the Pope closely and hear his message centered on family life. By chance, it was a lovely and shining day contrary to the previous damps and cold weather. The atmosphere is festive as names of pilgrims groups are announced in various languages including Arabic.
