Pope Francis reminds us in Laudato Si’ of the importance of healing creation. Our relationship with Creation requires us to heal it, but it can also heal us. When we connect with nature, it can help us heal trauma, grief and sadness.

For this prayer, find a place in nature that you enjoy. If you cannot go outside, listen to the rain, look up at the sky or at a photo. You can find a video with photos on here. Read the words very slowly, pausing after each sentence. Allow yourself to be still and present to God’s creation.

Be still and know that I am God.Be still and know that I am.Be still and know.Be still.Be.

Amen,Prayer by Fr. Richard Rohr
