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

This month, our January Encounter features:

  • Monthly Intention
  • Prayer for nonviolence
  • Monthly Reflection
  • Hearing Creation’s Cry
  • Hearing Creation’s Song
  • Inspiring Saint
  • New year, new opportunities!

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.

Peace, justice and the preservation of creation are three absolutely interconnected themes, which cannot be separated and treated individually without once again falling into reductionism.

Prayer for nonviolence

God of Mercy and Compassion, open our hearts to Your grace. Give us the courage, we pray, to radically transform our own lives, and appreciate more deeply the covenant You made with all creatures on earth.

Help us to respond to the cry of the earth and of the poor, as peacemakers who challenge the violence that threatens us all.

Guide us along the path of nonviolence, to reconnect with nature, to value all peoples of the earth, to consume less, and waste nothing. Pour out upon us the power of Your love, that we may protect life and beauty.

Fill us with Your peace, that we may live as brothers and sisters, harming no one.

We make this prayer through Christ Our Lord.


By Pax Christi England & Wales and Catholic Nonviolence Initiative.

Prayer from the Laudato Si’ Movement Prayer Book, which you can download here.
