Laudato Si: A 9 Minute Video of Praise

On June 18th, 2015 Pope Francis issued ‘Laudato Si’. This Spring, we worked to bring you a nine-minute video for your use in teaching and preaching. Using seven Scripture passages that tell of Jesus meeting people after his Resurrection, we interspersed quotes from Pope Francis’s Encyclical–‘Laudato Si’

Francis issued ‘Laudato Si’ on Pentecost 2015.
We are issuing our video on Pentecost 2016!
