March in solidarity with people on the frontlines of the climate crisis and bring Pope Francis’ COP28 message to the streets of London.
A prayer inspired by the Apostolic Exhortation Laudate Deum released by Pope Francis on 4 October 2023.
O God we praise you,
for the world sings
of your infinite love.
Forgive us our failure
to agree a way forward
to protect this earth
and our children's future.
For the way the powerful
shelter behind their wealth,
while the poorest people are disregarded,
and the earth is at breaking point.
Guide our leaders
to set aside their own interests
in the interest of us all
and grant us all the courage
to turn our concern into change.
Strengthen our faith,
and let us never lose hope
so together we may rise up
responding to the urgent call
of your people and all creation.
Prayer: Catherine Gorman/CAFOD
