In Laudato Sí, Pope Francis has underlined the fundamental connection that exists between the environmental crisis and the social crisis that we are currently experiencing and asks us for a personal and community ecological conversion. He often reminds us “everything is interconnected.” “Sowing Hope for the Planet” is a project in which every Sister whose congregation is a member of UISG, and their connections are provided with an opportunity to make a difference in our care of the planet. This project is a collaborative effort of the JPIC Commission in the name of UISG and the Laudato Si Movement.
In preparing for Easter, Pope Francis reminds us on Palm Sunday. “Nothing is impossible for God. We entrust this to Him through the intercession of the Virgin Mary.” We pray that during this spiritually enriching triduum time, we seek the guidance of our Virgin Mary to see what is ours to do to make this world a better place.
Please pray for the people of Ukraine and Russia who are facing conflict, as well as those who have fled and become refugees. We must also remember all refugees and migrants all over the world - from Venezuela, Afghanistan, South Sudan, Myanmar or any other areas of conflict or disaster. The ramifications of the current Ukrainian situation are also affecting economies worldwide and many are now facing inflation and scarcity. Please keep everyone in your prayers.
Many blessings on your Lenten journey!
