IHM Patron: St. Paul

IHM Virtue: Faith

Scripture: "I am the light

of the world" (John 8:12).

WISE MEN STILL SEEK HIM!

MAY YOUR YEAR BE BLESSED WITH GOD'S LOVING CARE FOR YOU

AND THOSE YOU LOVE!

Everything Has a Voice


Everything has a voice -

The wind shouts loud and clear

"Sing praise to our Creator!"

For all the world to hear.


"Praise God!" roars the might ocean;

"Praise God!" murmurs the stream;

"Praise God!" from the depths of the deep, blue lake

Comes the sound like a lyrical dream.


And the trees in the night wind swaying

Raise their leafy arms on high;

"Praise God!" blending sound and gesture

They greet the clouds passing by.


The fragrant woodland flowers

Proclaim from day to day

The essence of their message.

"Praise God!" they seem to say.


"Praise God!" sing the stars all a-twinkle

"Praise God!" the planets glow

"Praise God!" all creation rejoices

As eons come and go.


Everyone has a song--

Let it ring out loud and clear

Til it quickens the earth with a holy mirth

Spreading Hope from sphere to sphere.

Sr. Maria Jane McCarthy, IHM

If Laudato Si' was a gentle and pastoral invitation to care for creation, Laudate Deum is a visceral, prophetic call to conversion. Eight years after Laudato Si's initial publication, Pope Francis once again takes on the looming challenges of the climate crisis that have only worsened.


How do you fit into this picture? What can you do to help?
