At his General Audience, Pope Francis recalled that September 1 is World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, a day he established in 2015 to coincide with the Orthodox Church's special day of prayer for the planet. 

POPE FRANCIS
“Today we celebrate the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation. Now is the beginning of the “Time for Creation,” which will close on October 4, feast day of St. Francis of Assisi. This year's theme is “A Home for All, Renewing God's Oikos (dwelling place).”

The Pope announced that he has prepared a message with Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew and the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, on the current climate situation.

POPE FRANCIS
“With Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew, and the Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, we have prepared a message which will be released in the coming days. Together with our brothers and sisters of different Christians faiths, we pray and work for our common home in these times of grave planetary crisis.”

September 1 marks the beginning of the “Time of Creation,” a period during which the Orthodox, Anglican, and Catholic Churches pray together for the protection of the planet. It will conclude on October 4, the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi.
