Novena to Saint Francis

Third Prayer - Wind and Air

“We praise you, Lord, for Brothers Wind and Air,

fair and stormy, all weather's moods,

by which you cherish all that you have made.” (St Francis of Assisi)


 “We ourselves are water, air, earth and life of this environment created by God.”

(Guaviare people, Colombia)


Creator God,

we have disturbed the natural cycle,

upset Earth’s fragile balance.

Forgive us for our lack of care.


St Francis, joyful steward of creation,

you lived in peace with nature and with God.

Inspired by your witness,

may we defend our common home.


 St Francis, pray for us.
