Earth Day news and prayer – April 22
On Earth Day (April 22nd), all Heads of State can sign the Paris Agreement at a high-level signing ceremony at the United Nations in New York. The Paris Agreement will enter into force after 55 countries, accounting for at least 55% of global emissions, have deposited proof of country ratification. The European Union, China and United States are key because these countries emit the largest portion of greenhouse gases.
As of 10 April 2016, China, the United States and Australia have indicated that they intend to sign the Paris Agreement on April 22nd.
You are invited to distribute this prayer service, Caring for Our Common Home, to all PBVM sisters, associates, and friends of Nano. Let all of us unite in prayer on April 22.
