Preparing for the 2019 Season of Creation with MIA Resources
Editor: On 6 August 2015, Pope Francis announced the ‘World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation’ to be celebrated on 1 September annually. In response to this call ‘to contribute to resolving the ecological crisis which humanity is presently experiencing’, for five years now MIA has commemorated this date as beginning the Season of Creation (1September-4 October), marking it with prayer and resources distributed through Mercy eNews.
We wish to share with you a new calendar and posters, based on a water theme, for your use during this Season. We invite you to let us know of new resources for the Season of Creation which you have produced or discovered so that news of these might also be shared through Mercy eNews during this time.
