2017 Earth Day Prayer Service
April 22, 2016
Show Mercy to Our Common Home In our current global reality, violence is endemic, permeating not only our human relationships, but also our relationships with Earth. In this prayer, we invite you to reflect on these dynamics which undergird the violence being done to our planet, and to embrace a nonviolent, merciful response to Earth and other beings with whom we share our common home.
Prayer Service for International Day of Prayer & Awareness Against Human Trafficking
February 8, 2017
In his 2017 Message for the World Day of Peace, Pope Francis speaks of “piecemeal” violence that pervades our world, violence of different forms and levels that causes great suffering globally. Human trafficking is one such source of suffering. In this prayer, we invite you to reflect on the violence that permeates many of our social, cultural, economic and environmental arenas, which increases vulnerability to human trafficking.
