Canticle of Creation

The "Canticle of Creation" is a song of praise written by Francis of Assisi in which he calls out to all of creation as brother and sister - revealing that all of life is interconnected and that we are called to live in relationship with all life forms.

On the feast day of St Francis, 4 October, we invite you to join with us in this prayer of praise which was the inspiration for Pope Francis' encyclical letter on ecology, Laudato Si'
