This Feast Day of St Francis of Assisi, the parishioners, students and clergy of the Diocese of Parramatta present our reflection, created to show the beauty of our Diocese and the worldwide Christian celebration of the Season of Creation.
For Catholics around the world, the 2020 Season of Creation marks five years since the release of Laudato Si’, the letter from Pope Francis on the care of our common home. Pope Francis says “This is the season for letting our prayer life be inspired anew, to reflect on our lifestyles, to undertake prophetic acts for creation. It’s a time to call for courageous decisions, and direct the planet towards life not death. The Season of Creation is a time to care for the most vulnerable, and restore the connections that make us whole.”
We thank all those members of our Diocese who submitted their art for inclusion in this reflection. In coming days further submissions will be featured on The Well.
