The day is used to advocate for the sustainable management of freshwater resources.
UN-Water is the convener for World Water Day and selects the theme for each year in consultation with UN organizations that share an interest in that year’s focus.
The theme for 2020 is “Water and Climate Change” and explores how the two issues are inextricably linked.
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic,
the 2020 campaign also promoted messages
around hand washing and hygiene and gave guidance
on staying safe while supporting the campaign.
World Water Day is celebrated around the world with a variety of events. The first World Water Day, designated by the United Nations, was in 1993.
The Blessing and Virtue of Prudence
When St. Bernadette walked the Earth she dug in the dirt and discovered the healing waters at Lourdes, and when she talked to us through Linda Dillon, channel for the Council of Love, she told us this:
“Any water is healing water.
“When you say a prayer to the Mother and you ask her to bless your water, to turn it into the sacred healing waters, that request and that prayer is always heard and as you sip that water I will be there with you.
“So, I am not one of the more fancy or gregarious beings, but I wish you to know that I am with you and I know what it is to have your faith tested. Be strong my beloved ones.”
