Ninth Day of Climate Change Novena

Feast of St. Catherine of Siena – Day of the Climate March, April 29 2017

Prayer:

Watch the video on YouTube entitled, “Sunrise” by Brian Craig, and soak in the hope of a new day.

According to Catherine,

O Fire Ever Blazing, the soul who comes to know herself in
You finds Your greatness wherever she turns,
even in the tiniest things, in people and in all created things,
for in all of them she sees your power and
wisdom and mercy.

Study:

We have received many study resources over the days of this novena – many more than we could have covered in a mere nine days. Today review those sources and consider:

To which ones will you return? To which ones will you dig into a little deeper?

We Dominicans, both sisters and associates, have studied the life and writings of Catherine. As we review her life now, consider:

What might she be able to teach us today, so that we might enkindle a new sense of recommitment to finding God as we turn to Earth?

Act:  

March 29th is the day of the Climate March. Everyone cannot go to Washington, DC for the March, so here is a resource so that you can march in a city near you https://peoplesclimate.org/#map.

If you are unable to attend a March, there are other ways to participate:

And most importantly we must continue to keep the energy and spirit of this day alive all the days after the March and our novena, remembering that our sister Catherine calls us to “Preach the truth as if you had a million voices. It is silence that kills the world.”

For further prayer, study, and action, you can order the DVD, Immersed in God’s Creation: Catherine of Siena from Amazon. It was created in 2009 by the Earth Council of the OPSCC, and the message is even more needed more today.
