August 04, 2015 Let Us Create a Climate of Change prayer (D&P contest winner)
LET US CREATE A CLIMATE OF CHANGE

Lord, in the joy of your Creation,
The whole human family has received 
this unique gift from you: 
our planet Earth.

We sincerely thank you, Lord! 

Lord, look on our EARTH and 
help us to recognize that it is urgent that we act…
…for we are destroying our forests,
devastating our soil,
and polluting our seas.

When we do this, 
we cause changes to our climate,
and create environmental turmoil
that increase poverty in the countries of the South.

We sincerely ask for forgiveness, Lord.

Yes, it is time to act…
to guide our planet 
in its development 
and in its peace.

-Marie-Paule M., Trois-Rivières QC
Tuesday September 01, 2015 World Day of Prayer for Care of Creation

World Day of Prayer

Pope Francis has designated September 1 for celebration as an annual World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. In his announcement, the Holy Father said this special day "will offer individual believers and communities a fitting opportunity to reaffirm their personal vocation to be stewards of creation, to thank God for the wonderful handiwork which he has entrusted to our care, and to implore his help for the protection of creation as well as his pardon for the sins committed against the world in which we live."

"The celebration of this Day, on the same date as the Orthodox Church, will be a valuable opportunity to bear witness to our growing communion with our Orthodox brothers and sisters. We live at a time when all Christians are faced with the same decisive challenges, to which we must respond together, in order to be more credible and effective. It is my hope that this Day will in some way also involve other Churches and ecclesial Communities, and be celebrated in union with similar initiatives of the World Council of Churches.

APRIL -
income tax time
It is income tax time again and a good opportunity to include this or a similar note with your return.  Pass it on to as many as possible. 
PERSONAL DECLARATION: I wish to protest the use of my tax money to support, in Alberta and on the federal level, the legalized killing known as abortion. I wish to have it known that, in spite of my protest, I am FORCED to participate through my taxes in the taking of innocent human life. I would like this statement to be permanently filed with my tax records to show that this involvement is involuntary and against the dictates of my conscience.
