Pope Establishes Prayer Day for the Care of Creation

Pope Francis has instituted a World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation that will be celebrated every year on September 1. In establishing this new prayer day the Holy Father hopes it will be an occasion for people to “reaffirm their personal vocation to be stewards of creation, to thank God for the wonderful handiwork which he has entrusted to our care, and to implore his help for the protection of creation as well as his pardon for the sins committed against the world in which we live.” For more read the Letter of His Holiness Pope Francis.
