Daily Reflection:  Matthew 26.36-38.......

You have made the moon to mark the season;

the sun knows its time for setting.

You make darkness, and it is night,

when all the animals of the forest come creeping out.

The young lions roar for their prey,

seeking their food from God.

When the sun rises, they withdraw and lie down in their dens.

People go out to their work 

and to their labour until the evening.


O Lord, how manifold are your works!

In wisdom you have made them all;

the earth is full of your creatures.


Psalm 104 celebrates the wonders of God's world and praises God's wisdom in creating and ordering all things - including darkness.


Read the order of creation in Genesis - it is perfect.   Try re-ordering it and you'll find it impossible for only the Creator of heaven and earth has designed perfection, but now it is up to us to maintain this beautiful creation upon which our lives depend.




Loving God; we praise your name with all you have created.

You are present in the whole universe, and in the smallest of creatures.

We acknowledge the responsibilities you have placed upon us as stewards of your creation.

           May the Holy Spirit inspire all political leaders as they seek to embrace the changes needed to foster a more sustainable society.

Instil in them the courage and gentleness to implement fairer solutions for the poorest and most vulnerable, and commit their nations to the care of Our Common Home.

We ask this through Our Lord Jesus Christ your Son.
