To mark this second World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, the pope has issued a message, “Show Mercy to Our Common Home,” as well as recorded a video.

In his message, the pope writes: “…human beings are deeply connected with all of creation. When we mistreat nature, we also mistreat human beings.” He also suggests: “So let me propose a complement to the two traditional sets of seven: may the works of mercy also include care for our common home.”
