On Sunday, it will be the national day of prayer in solidarity with Indigenous peoples which is the feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe. On this day, we remember that we are all the Body of Christ who was called to live in solidarity with all peoples. We are called to respect, protect, defend and nurture the oneness of all God's Creation. God made this Earth as a true gift to His children of all nations. Let us pray a prayer written by the Canadian Council of Catholic Bishops.
O Creator God,
With humility we, your children,
acknowledge the relationship of all living things.
For this, we thank you,
we praise you and we worship you.
Father, as we walk our journey on this Earth,
may your life-giving Spirit protect and
guide us with your Wisdom
so that we might live in right relationship and harmony
with all humanity.
May we pass on to future generations
this Earth and all your gifts as you have provided them to us.
Through Christ our Lord,
South Entrance - Mr. Schellenberg
