Prayer for the Amazon Synod

At the moment the Amazon Synod is taking place in the Vatican. Bishops, representatives of indigenous peoples, experts from all over the world, special guests, among others, will meet for three weeks to search together for new paths for the church and for an integral ecology from the reality that the peoples in the Amazon are living and suffering.
The Amazon Synod is a call for "ecological conversion", an invitation to engage in the protection of the environment, our common home, and in the fight against social injustice and the greed for profit at the expense of the environment and of human beings. The challenge is how to reconcile ecological and human development.
The Union of International Superiors General (UISG) has called on all religious communities to cooperate in dealing with these issues, to meet, to exchange ideas and to pray for the Synod. The Loreto Sisters obeying this call  invited members of other communities near them to share and pray together. We were 8 participants from three different communities and we had a lively sharing of our personal experiences. The focal point of our sharing was the question of what each one of us can do to preserve God's wonderful creation.
