CUSTODIANS OF CREATION
Almighty Father, we thank you for the world you have created, and for calling all of us to be custodians of your creation.
We renew our personal participation in our vocation as custodians of creation, giving thanks for the marvelous works that you have entrusted to our care, Help and guide us in our efforts to protect your creation. We commend to your mercy those who are destructive or abusive of our earth and its environment.
Forgive their offences and guide them, and all of us, to take care of the world in which we live, so that the resources you have placed at our disposal, may endure for the benefit of your people.
