Pentecost Novena on the Care of Creation

The Catholic Bishops of England and Wales, in conjunction with The God Who Speaks team, have offered a Pentecost Novena – prepared for the church in response to the latest Bishops’ Plenary.

All members of the Catholic Church in England and Wales are encouraged to make response in prayer and action to the urgent climate change issues.

This Novena of readings and prayer are drawn from the Bible and recent Papal teaching on the care of creation and the environment.

The New Testament tells us that during the period between the Ascension and Pentecost “All these with one accord were devoting themselves to prayer together with the women and Mary the mother of Jesus, and his brothers…” (Acts 1:14) while they awaited being “clothed with power from on high” (Luke 24:49).

You are invited to pray these nine days reflecting on the account of creation given in the book of Genesis. This Novena can be used on its own or to complement and focus the prayers and reflections of the ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ global prayer movement to the Care of Creation theme.
