@Gerry: Most glaciers started melting around the mid-1800s. The industrial revolution started around 1750, and the Swiss industry started booming near the mid 1800s.

The Vatican and, significantly, U.S. bishops clearly say they support the scientific consensus on climate change. It simply makes sense for a glacier retreat prayer to be changed. Besides, prayer is mystical and in the mundane, prayer intentions should be expressed in deeds.
From the looks of it the catholic church has a more enlightened and pro-active worldview than the murricans posting here...
