Vatican teams up with documentarians to project images of endangered species
Where the faithful gather is where hope and faith are most prevalent. In its bid to support the protection of endangered animals, the Vatican partnered with Racing Extinction’s film producers to make a bold statement. Racing Extinction is a documentary that sheds light on the possibility of mass loss of species that can be caused by wildlife trade and pollution as well as the darker underbellies of the oil and gas trade business. The Vatican was used to project giant images of the world’s most endangered animals. The light display used St. Peter’s Basilica as the canvas and it attracted thousands of on-lookers.
Earlier, Pope Francis quoted “Everything is related, and we human beings are united as brothers and sisters on a wonderful pilgrimage, woven together by the love God has for each of his creatures,” The special efforts by the leaders of the Catholic faith is another encouraging move towards awareness and sustaining the lives of endangered animals across the globe. And nothing propagates a message quicker than one that comes from the house of worship.
