A Prayer for Our Earth (NEW)
Asking Mary to intercede for us to bring
lasting peace on earth.
May the Virgin Mary give us her Son,
may she show us the Face of her Son,
the Prince of Peace.
May she help us to remain in the light of this face
that shines upon us (cf. Nm 6:25),
in order to rediscover all the tenderness of God the Father;
may it be she who supports us in invoking the Holy Spirit,
so that he will renew the face of the earth and transform hearts, dissolving their hardness
in the face of the disarming goodness
of the Child who was born for us.
May the Mother of God accompany us in this New Year;
may she obtain for us and for the whole world
the desired gift of peace.
Pope Benedict XVI
Prayer for Earth Day
Triune Lord, wondrous community of infinite love,
... The poor and the earth are crying out.
O Lord, seize us with your power and light,
help us to protect all life,
to prepare for a better future,
for the coming of your Kingdom
of justice, peace, love and beauty.
Praise be to you!
Amen. (LS 246)
