Happy new liturgical year!

On this weeks podcast we enter into the season of Advent and the beginning of the new liturgical year as we begin our preparation for the Christmas Season.  Part two of the podcast is a short reflection on how Advent is an often overlooked season with the panic of preparation for Christmas and plays second fiddle to Lent in terms of it is penitential nature but it still provides us with an opportunity to prepare and to take that time out to allow us to encounter the Divine!

C&SI -"The Letter" - A message for our earth - 20 Nov 2022 (S02E52b) (podcast excerpt)

The C&SI team are joined by Jane Mellet from Trocaire to speak about a new film "The Letter" which was released on Youtube on 4th October - the feast of St Francis of Assisi and the last day of the 2022 Season of Creation.

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 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.
