Amazing Vatican Light Show Displays the Beauty of Creation

Carolyn Wickware explains, “The opening of the Holy Year of Mercy culminated in a nature-inspired light show, with images of animals and the natural world projected onto the facade of St Peter’s Basilica yesterday evening. Inspired by Pope Francis’s encyclical Laudato Si’: On Care of our Common Home, changing images of endangered animals and nature were projected on the basilica in a three-hour event entitled Fiat Lux: Illuminating Our Common Home.”

David Gibson writes, “Pope Francis hopes they will inspire people — and negotiators at the climate change conference in Paris — to battle global warming and protect the environment.”
