Magisterium of the People: From the Director's Chair

Salt + Light Media

December 24, 2018
In 2015, the Catholic Committee of Appalachia (CCA) published their famous "People's Pastoral," a letter that came directly from the people of Appalachia, a place in great need of healing. It was the result of decades of listening to the cries of the poor and of earth, and working to heal their wounds.
Magisterium of the People, a brand new documentary which airs tomorrow on Salt + Light TV, explores the story behind this bold and prophetic document.
