MGA at the UN Water and Ocean Reflections

Mercy Global Action at the UN has developed a 12-week reflective resource to highlight the issues surrounding our planet’s seas and oceans. This includes all the fresh and saltwater waterways our planet holds. This 12-week reflection begins on UN World Water Day (22 March) and ends on UN World Ocean Day (8 June).

Each week's reflection includes:

  1. Excerpts from Pope Francis (primarily using the encyclical Laudato Si)
  2. A video clip that you can watch (just hover your cursor and click the link to watch)
  3. An opportunity for action and prayer reflection
 

Mercy2Earth weekend

Mercy International Association

As part of our Mercy global response to the 'cry of the Earth and the cry of the poor', we have created resources for use on this weekend and beyond. In using the term 'Mercy to Earth' and in working with our existing MIA logo, we are highlighting in a particular way our response to the invitation of Pope Francis: 'May the works of mercy also include care for our common home'.

The resources on this website (all digital files) are available for use by members of the Mercy family and our partners-in-Mercy.
