Prayer as Pope Francis Addresses the U.N. General Assembly

As you know, in mid-June Laudato Si,’ Pope Francis’ long-awaited encyclical urging care of Earth and care of the poor was released.  On September 25, Pope Francis will address the delegates to the U.N. General Assembly, stressing the urgent need for a vigorous international response to climate change and other environmental degradation, as well as the vast inequities that exist on our planet. 

We invite you to join Catholics throughout the world in prayer for openness to the Pope’s message using the prayer service and lighting a candle.  Based on the encyclical itself, the prayer will help all of us more deeply internalize some of the key themes of the document.  

Here the Encyclical Letter:
