Come and see the works of God. 

— Psalm 66:5

 Praise be to you, my Lord, through all your creatures,

Laudato Si', Mi Signore
especially through my Brother Sun,
through Sister Moon and the stars,
through Brother Wind,
and through the air, cloudy and serene,
and every kind of weather.

Praised be You, my Lord, through Sister Water,
through Brother Fire,
through Sister Mother Earth,
who sustains us, producing
varied fruits with coloured flowers and herbs.

Praise be to you, my Lord, through all your creatures,
Laudato Si', Mi Signore

— St. Francis of Assisi in "Canticle of the Creatures," written in 1225

Hear both the cry of the earth and the cry of the poor
 — Pope Francis, Laudato Si'

Thank you for participating this mini-retreat during the Season of Creation.
I'd love to hear from you:
Any specific commitments that you'll carry forward? How might you live differently? How will you live out "Amen"?
You can reach me here

Special thanks for all creatures great and small
