On December 10th, International Human Rights Day, the Sisters of Charity of the Incarnate Word, Associates, and Ministry Collaborators participated in a day of prayer and fasting for creation, connecting climate change to the global threat to human rights.  The day of prayer and fasting was sponsored by the Congregational JPIC Office who prepared a resource guide for participants and encouraged them to donate the money saved by fasting to the congregational office in their country in order to support a project for environmental justice.  More:

PRAYER:  Creator God, it is you who have made us all and you who gather us to form one family. We are each so differently gifted and our lives celebrate many cultures and traditions, and yet we are one. Open our ears to hear your call to live in solidarity, to form one body, one family.  Open our eyes to see the dignity of all your creation.  Open our hearts to respond with compassion and strength to defend the human rights of all.   Amen
