5th anniversary of Laudato Si, the encyclical of Pope Francis
Since their General Chapter in the summer of 2018, the Sisters of Divine Providence of Saint Jean de Bassel have been committed to taking care of creation. They have taken to heart Laudato Sí, the encyclical of Pope Francis.
This year, 2020, marks the 5th anniversary of the publication of Laudato Sí. The Sisters invite you to join them in commemorating this event during the week of May 16 to 24.
The theme of this week, known as Laudato Sí Week is “all is connected”. In # 42 of the encyclical, Pope Francis writes “each much be cherished with love and respect, for all of us as living creatures are dependent on one another.”
During this global health crisis, we can pray, reflect and work together to build a better future.
Various activities are suggested on the Laudato Si Week website
Sunday, May 24, is scheduled to be a world day of prayer. All are invited to pray this prayer at noon, local time: The prayer
