Our planet earth is longing for fresh breath. Season of Creation reminds the world that it is the time where relationship with the creator and all the creation needs a revival.
Similar to the Pentecost vigil of May 30 th, the Social Justice and Ecology Secretariat (SJES), along with Jesuits institutions and networks have organised the Global Ignatian Prayer Vigil “Breathing Together” for the Season of Creation on the evening of Friday 25 th September. Since it is a global celebration, the vigil will be celebrated in three times zones in Asia, Europe/Africa and the Americas at 8:00 pm in each time-zones respectively.
In this prayer, we will focus on three lungs of the earth; the Amazon, the Congo Basin and Asian forests. The vigil will have a flow of personal testimonies from indigenous people of the three lungs of the planet, reflections, combined with melodious music, interactive moments with participants, and symbolic actions. Fr. Arturo Sosa, the Superior General of the Society of Jesus, will introduce and orient the vigil with his reflections. The vigil would be for 40-45 minutes and it will be broadcasted live, and in two languages (English and Spanish), on the Jesuits Global YouTube channel.You can find more information onhttps://breathingtogether.jesuits.global.
