The Laudato Si’ Movement produces a monthly reflection, which incorporates resources and reflections on aspects of Laudato Si’ and ecological conversion.

This resource is a guide for our movement members to use collectively or individually every month. Each month this prayer guide brings reflections and testimonies from different members of our global movement to inspire you to pray, contemplate, reflect, and act for creation. This month’s edition was prepared by Cheryl Dugan, Adrian Tambuyat, and Reynaldo Raluto from the Philippines, with the support of Suzana Moreira, from Brazil, and the strategic work by Guada García Corigliano from Argentina, design work by Marco Vargas from Ecuador, as well as work from others of the Communications team spread across the Americas and translators spread across the world.

Full details are to be found in the Monthly Prayer Guide, which is sure to inspire you in your ongoing ecological conversion. A pdf version is also available to download here.

Our concern cannot be limited merely to the threat of extreme weather events, but must also extend to the catastrophic consequences of social unrest

Tears of Creation (from the LSM Prayer Book)

Lord Jesus,
through Your incarnation

You shared the tears of creation
that “groans and suffers
the pains of childbirth” (Romans 8: 22)

You made human fragility your own
in climatic injustice,
in our fears, and in our worries.
When anguish tries to prevail
over the oppressed peoples and over us,
we ask You to bring Your loving
presence to our hearts,
in order to rediscover the purpose
of our presence in the world.

Amen
