The Season of Creation began on 1st September and will conclude on 4th October (Feast of St. Francis of Assisi).  I have taken 2 lines from Pope Francis’s prayer A prayer for our Earth and during the week ahead let it be foremost in our minds as we go about our daily work.

Pour out upon us the power of your love, that we may protect life and beauty. Fill us with peace, that we may live as brothers and sisters, harming no one.
