'In the words of this beautiful canticle, Saint Francis of Assisi reminds us that our common home is like a sister with whom we share our life and a beautiful mother who opens her arms to embrace us. “Praise be to you, my Lord, through our Sister, Mother Earth, who sustains and governs us, and who produces various fruit with coloured flowers and herbs”.This sister now cries out to us because of the harm we have inflicted on her by our irresponsible use and abuse of the goods with which God has endowed her. We have come to see ourselves as her lords and masters, entitled to plunder her at will. The violence present in our hearts, wounded by sin, is also reflected in the symptoms of sickness evident in the soil, in the water, in the air and in all forms of life. This is why the earth herself, burdened and laid waste, is among the most abandoned and maltreated of our poor; she “groans in travail” (Rom 8:22). We have forgotten that we ourselves are dust of the earth (cf. Gen 2:7); our very bodies are made up of her elements, we breathe her air and we receive life and refreshment from her waters.' (Laudato Si 1-2)

The Social Justice and Ecology Secretariat (SJES) invites all to join the global Ignatian family in a prayer  “Breathing Together” for the Season of Creation. This vigil that will be celebrated in three time zones ( Asia, Europe/Africa, and the Americas at 8.00 p.m in each of the time-zones respectively  ) will take place on Friday evening 25th September. At the centre of this celebration, there is a call to conversion and commitment. For more information, visit the website of the Social Justice and Ecology Secretariat.

The JCAM website wrote that 'The vigil will not last more than 40-45 minutes and it will be broadcasted live, in two languages (English and Spanish), on the Jesuits Global YouTube channel. You can find more information on https://breathingtogether.jesuits.global'
