45] – On Tues., Oct. 4 at 12:30 PM ET, the Feast Day of St. Francis of Assisi was chosen for the launch on YouTube of the long-anticipated film The Letter, an 80-min. film production of Off the Fence (My Octopus Teacher) in collaboration with the Laudato Si' Movement and the Vatican.  The film highlights Pope Francis' vision for caring for the earth and its people as expressed in his encyclical Laudato Si': Care of Our Common Home. But it takes us into the lives and work of four individuals from distinct communities: scientists, youth, indigenous and the displaced - each responding to climate change in their own way.
