Louisiana Conference of Catholic Bishops Statement
on the Occasion of the Promulgation of Laudato Si
Mary Immaculate - Patroness of Our Country - Pray for Us
O GOD OUR CREATOR, from your provident hand we have received our right to
life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. You have called us as your people and given us the right
and the duty to worship you, the only true God, and your Son, Jesus Christ. Through the power
and working of your Holy Spirit, you call us to live out our faith in the midst of the world,
bringing the light and the saving truth of the Gospel to every corner of society.
We ask you to bless us in our vigilance for the gift of religious liberty. Give us the strength of mind and heart to
readily defend our freedoms when they are threatened; give us courage in making our voices heard on behalf
of the rights of your Church and the freedom of conscience of all people of faith.
Grant, we pray, O heavenly Father, a clear and united voice to all your sons and daughters
gathered in your Church in this decisive hour in the history of our nation, so that, with every trial withstood
and every danger overcome—for the sake of our children, our grandchildren, and all who come after us—
this great land will always be “one nation, under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.”
We ask this through Christ our Lord. Amen.
