Five Things To Remember On Aug. 31

1. Tomorrow is World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. This video on “Care for God’s Creation” is the first of a seven-part series on Catholic Social Teaching, designed to be an introduction to this body of thought with notable Catholics reflecting on each of the teachings. The video release comes in conjunction with Pope Francis’ declaration of September 1 as a day of prayer for creation. The video series is co-sponsored by Catholic Relief Services and the Department of Justice, Peace and Human Development of the USCCB.

2. The Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace has published a proposal to encourage the faithful to organize in their particular Churches an hour of Eucharistic Adoration on the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation tomorrow. The proposal, which opens with a 5-minute audio-visual welcome, is offered on the Dicastery’s website,, under the special section dedicated to the Laudato Si’ . It is available for download in English.
