when we pray for climate justice, we pray to strengthen our long-standing commitment to justice, peace and the integrity of your creation.
Climate change threatens human rights as universal and indivisible rights for all people: rights to food, water; health and adequate housing; political and civil rights.
We need to listen to the voices of victims. Please help us understand the problems of climate change as social problems so that we respect human dignity and the common good.
We pray for justice - between the global North and South - beyond generations – beyond genders – with marginalized groups – with the non-human parts of your creation.
God, make us an instrument of your justice so that we are no longer part of the problem, but of the solution.
