Join Laudato Si’ Lent today to receive weekly reminders and ideas about how you can live this journey of ecological conversion with this movement, including opportunities to connect through retreats, webinars, and prayer services.
Each week will feature a “mini-fast” challenge that will help all of us reduce our ecological footprint and reflect on our relationship with God and all creation.
Fr. Dr. Eduardo Agosta Scarel of Argentina will reflect on the Gospel of Mark and Laudato Si’. The climate scientist and Carmelite priest will offer his thoughts on how Jesus calls all of us to be disciples and how we can testify to that love through actions for our common home.
We’ll also hear creation’s song, cry, and invitation from throughout Latin America.
Think of these prayer services as little boosts, ways to keep all of us connected, inspired, and supported as we work to bring Laudato Si’ to life in our communities.
“Contemplation is the antidote against misuse of our common home.” Pope Francis (16 Sept 2020)
Starting 3 February, GCCM will host weekly "Laudato Si' Community Contemplations." These free 35-minute meditation sessions will bring together the entire GCCM community in contemplation to support our communal ecological conversion.
Each session will feature a short reflection, a 15-20 minute guided meditation, time for sharing, and a closing prayer. We hope to cultivate that attitude of heart “which approaches life with serene attentiveness... which accepts each moment as a gift from God to be lived to the full.” (Laudato Si' 226)
Laudato Si’ Community Contemplations Date: Every Wednesday, starting 3 February Time: 12:00 New York | 18:00 Rome | 20:00 Nairobi Cost: Free
