For the first time, Pope Francis has released his message for the World Day of Prayer for Creation, which marks the beginning of the Time for Creation. This Thursday 21 July, in a press conference from the Vatican, the message was made public.
What does the Pope tell us in this message? He invites us to take advantage of the Time for Creation 2022 to “cultivate our ecological conversion” and to pray together in “the great cathedral of Creation”. He also refers to the upcoming COPs on climate and biodiversity and calls on world leaders to take concrete action, as “we are reaching a tipping point” and we must act immediately.
