Care for Creation Ministry

“Consider that God, your Benefactor, is present in all creatures and in yourself. If you look at every step of the visible creation, in all you will meet God.”
St. Ignatius Loyola

St. Andrew’s Care for Creation Ministry, along with other parishioners, is working on preparing a Laudato Si’ Action Plan for the parish, outlining actions that we can take over the next seven years to respond to the “cry of the earth” and the “cry of the poor.”  Please join us!  Contact Tom Hinchen at hinchenthomas@gmail.com.
The Care for Creation Ministry is inspired by Pope Francis’s encyclical Laudato Si’ (On Care for Our Common Home).   Using the See-Judge-Act paradigm, this ministry provides resources for parishioners to reflect on God’s Creation; promotes discussion of Church teachings regarding the call to protect Earth and its living creatures; and works to make sure that St. Andrew the Apostle parish observes ecologically sound practices while bringing the message of Laudato Si’ to the larger community.
All are welcome to join!   More information…

SPIRITUAL COMMUNION PRAYER

My Jesus, I believe that you are present in the Most Holy Sacrament.
I love you above all things and I desire to receive you in my soul.
Since I cannot at this moment receive you sacramentally,
Come at least spiritually into my heart.I embrace you as if you were already there
And unite myself wholly to you. Never permit me to be separated from you.
Amen

ORACIÓN DE COMUNIÓN ESPIRITUAL
Creo, Jesus mio, que estas real y verdaderamente en le cielo y en el Santismo Sacramento del Altar.
Os amo sobre todas las cosas y deseo
Vivamente recibirte dentro de mi alma, pero no pudiendo hacerlo ahora sacramentalmente venid al menos espiritualmente a mi Corazon.
Y como si ya os hubiese recebido, os abrazo y me uno del todo a Ti. Senor, no permitas que jamas me aparte de Ti.
Amen
