The Francis Impact DVD + Study Guide

  • The Francis Impact DVD + Study Guide

The Francis Impact tells four unique stories of individuals and communities who have been deeply impacted by Pope Francis. The film begins in El Salvador where environmentalists struggle to preserve the nation’s fresh water supply through a legislative ban on metallic mining. From there, the film moves to central Minnesota where a Catholic couple shares the story of their long and frustrating annulment process. Across the Atlantic, a local carpenter on the tiny Italian island of Lampedusa makes crosses from the wood of decrepit boats that carried migrants from North Africa. Finally, the film shifts to Quebec where a horrific attack at a local mosque brings two faith leaders together in an astonishing way. Far from the corridors of the Vatican, the real “Francis impact” is felt by ordinary people who have been inspired, empowered and affirmed by him over the past five years.
