Five people received letters inviting them to a meeting with Pope Francis to discuss climate change. This film, entitled The Letter: A Message for Our Earth, documents their journeys to Rome from the Amazon, Senegal, India, and the coral reefs of Hawaii. It tells the story of these strangers who give voice to the young, poor, indigenous, and wildlife.
Thank you to those who joined us as witnesses to the connections these sojourners have to the places they call home, to each other, and to us through shared values. We hope you were touched and inspired to take action to care for our common home and work for a bright future.
This watch party event included prayer, discussion, and an invitation to take action. Together, all of us can cooperate as instruments of God for the care of creation.
