Three schools attended the screening of The Letter in the CYMS Killorglin, Monday 28th Nov.
In 2015, Pope Francis wrote Laudato Si’ (The Letter), an encyclical letter about the environmental crisis, to every single person in the world. A few years later, four voices that have gone unheard in global conversations have been invited to an unprecedented dialogue with the Pope. Hailing from Senegal, the Amazon, India, and Hawai’i, they bring perspective and solutions from the poor, the indigenous, the youth and wildlife into a conversation with Pope Francis himself. This 80-minute documentary follows their journey to Rome and the extraordinary experiences that took place there and is packed with powerfully moving personal stories alongside the latest information about the planetary crisis and the toll it’s taking on
nature and people.At the launch of ‘The Letter’ last month in Rome, Cardinal Czerny,
said “This beautiful film – a heart-breaking yet hopeful story – is a
clarion cry to people everywhere: wake up! get serious! act
together! act now!”
