Almighty God, to you belongs the sea, for you made it, and the dry land shaped by your hand. We hold the riches of the universe only in trust.
Make us honest stewards of your creation, careful of the good earth you have given us, compassionate and just in sharing its bounty with the whole human family.
Thank you for your generosity to us. Please give us the graces necessary to remain grateful to you every day.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
