TODAY’S DEVOTIONAL MESSAGE

St. Raphael – Restoring Vitality to Our Beloved Earth

Dearest one, allow the love of Christ into your heart today and open the floodgates to healing of the self and those around you. Today is an invitation to explore the power of healing, delve into the process of restoration, and engage with the transformative potential of rehabilitation.

We have been given power and authority by the Lord to act as stewards over all of His creation. To strive for peace, justice and environmental restoration that all life may prosper in balance.

“The Lord God took the man and put him in the Garden of Eden to work it and take care of it.”

– Genesis 2:15

It is within our power to heal our planet, to restore her vitality, and to ensure her rehabilitation. Our actions, however small they may seem, have the potential to bring about tremendous change. To heal our Earth, we must first heal ourselves, realigning our hearts and minds with the divine love that permeates all creation.

Is It Too Late to Save The Earth?

Sometimes it feels like too much has been taken from the earth for us to fully recover – from deforestation to plastic pollution, the damage caused by ignorance or greed has been immense to mother nature.

The beauty and diversity of life on this planet has been slowly reduced over generations until now it seems almost unrecognizable from what it used to be. However, Saint Raphael reminds us not to lose hope—God always provides a way to mend what has been broken by humankind.

For we too as humans were seemingly broken and lost, but through His grace we too have experienced salvation. Know that you too can have an instrumental role in restoring health and prosperity back into our planet’s ecosystems.

Do Not Be Overwhelmed by the Chaos

When we feel overwhelmed by these issues or despair at the destruction around us, Saint Raphael calls on us not just for action but also for stillness; for faith that there is something greater at work in restoring balance back into nature.

His message urges us not only to take action but also foster compassion and forgiveness towards ourselves so that we can extend this same grace towards others as well as Mother Earth herself—for she too needs healing from deep wounds inflicted by human hands.

Nature & God’s Creation

God’s presence is felt not only in the human form, but also throughout all of creation. From the majestic sunset to heartbeat of the animals, this connection reminds us that there is renewal even amidst destruction; that beauty grows even from ashes if given enough nourishment by love and care as well as time itself.

As St. Paul proclaimed to the Corinthians, “Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day.” (2 Corinthians 4:16). We are all called to this inward renewal, this restoration of our souls, that we may go forth and bring healing to our beloved Earth.

A Prayer for Vitality


Dear God, we come before you humbly asking for your help in restoring the earth and all its creatures to their divinely created state of balance.
We pray that you will give us strength and courage to be stewards of your creation.
Help us to live in harmony with nature, utilizing its resources with respect and care.
Guide us to use our gifts and talents to heal the earth and bring sustainable solutions that promote life instead of destruction.
We thank you for your mercy and grace in guiding us towards a better future for all of your beloved creations.
Saint Raphael, pray for us. Amen 🙏.”
