The earth, our home, is beginning to look more
and more like an immense pile of filth. Laudato
Si 66

sisters.

There is less rain. The soil dries up really
quickly. We have to keep watering the plants.
Flor Vilma Dueñas Olivo, Peru
21
The Yanomami are affected. The earth is
cracking. The destruction of the forest is making

changing, the rain is changing. Davi Kopenawa

22
The people in the cities, we want them to listen
and believe us. They dont see it. They let
it happen.

gift of God to be lived to the full. Laudato Si

or her own culture, experience, involvements and
talents. Laudato Si 14

  • and in the smallest of your creatures.
  • You embrace with your tenderness all that exists.

  • as brothers and sisters, harming no one.

36
  • Teach us to discover the worth of each thing,
  • to be filled with awe and contemplation,
  • to recognise that we are profoundly united
  • with every creature
  • as we journey towards your infinite light.

37
We thank you for being with us each
day. Encourage us, we pray, in our struggle for
justice, love and peace.
