Our Lady’s Missionaries celebrated Earth Hour in our various houses by turning off the lights and sharing prayer and conversation together. May we all keep the spirit of Earth Hour throughout the year as expressed in the closing prayer suggested by Kairos Canada: (http://kairoscanada.org/en/)
God, our Creator, as we reflect on the mystery of our fragile planet we celebrate the wonders of Earth as our home. Help us to discern how we have polluted our planet and to empathise with the groaning of creation. Teach us to sense the presence of God pulsing through Earth as a living green blue sanctuary. Teach us to love Earth as our home. In the name of Christ, the Word of God, who is the creative impulse in all creation. Amen.
