Season of Creation: A Home for All

Season of Creation: A Home for All

 

 

A Home for All

This is our prayer Creator God

as we begin September and the Season of Creation.*

 

A Home for All

where the dignity in which you created us

is respected, upheld and celebrated.

 

A Home for All

where creation too is given its rightful dignity

and appreciation for how Mother Earth sustains us.

 

A Home for All

where those fleeing terror and destruction

are welcomed and embraced.

 

A Home for All

where the common good is seen as a gift

not privileged for a few.

 

A Home for All

where we can appreciate cultures and creation

in our small corner of the world and beyond.

 

A Home for All

where the goods of the earth are seen

as our sisters and brothers.

 

A Home for All

where we work together for the care of creation

and the care of each other.

 

A Home for All

where we listen to stories of each other

and the story of creation.

 

A Home for All

where we remember that your love and mercy

are ever present and always generous.

 

A Home for All

where we are part of the renewal

of your oikos-household.

 

A Home for All

this is our prayer to you

our Creator God.

 

* From September 1 – World Day of Prayer for Care of Creation to October 4 – the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi, is known as the Season of Creation in which the Christian family celebrates the good gift of creation. The Season of Creation is a time to renew our relationship with our Creator and all creation through celebration, conversion, and commitment together.

The theme for 2021 is A Home for All: Renewing the Oikos of God.
