Pope Francis Institutes "World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation"

From Aleteia-

As millions of gallons of toxic decontaminate and sludge from a Colorado gold mine pour into the Animas River following a massive mining spill last week by the federal Environmental Protection Agency, Pope Francis has announced his decision to institute a “World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation” to be celebrated annually on September 1st.

The purpose of the Day is to offer all Catholics the 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.”
