At the Winter meeting of the Irish Bishops’ Conference, they stated, “COP27 heard heart-wrenching stories of people flooded out of their island homes by rising sea levels; of children starving in the Horn of Africa where the rains have failed for the fourth consecutive year; and, of more than 1,000 excess deaths last summer from heatwaves and fires amongst our own European neighbours.  This harsh reality is stunningly reflected in the recently released human-interest film, The Letter, inspired by Laudato Si’.  It tells the story of four people, who, in conversation with Pope Francis, reveal their roles in caring more deeply for our Common Home.  It is an invitation to each one of us to take up the challenge of addressing the ecological crisis in our own local communities.  Therefore, we invite our parishes, educational institutions, retreat centres, community centres and households to arrange a screening of The Letter.  It provides the opportunity for a conversation starter – beginning where you are – about how we can all use our gifts and talents to contribute to solutions that are needed urgently in order to protect our Common Home.”
