Lord Jesus, prevent the destruction of the Earth which is being done because of human greed and indifference to the sufferings of fellow men and women. Enlighten the rulers of the nation giving them understanding that the destruction of the Earth is the destruction of the poor and it will lead to the collective destruction of all human beings and every living being. We make this prayer through the intercession of Saint Kateri Tekakwitha the patron saint of ecologists, environment and Native Americans. Amen.
Today\'s continuation of our Easter celebration is a joyous proclamation of the great love God shows in calling us to be united with Christ. It is a day to look at our faults and failings and put them in perspective.
