The Cry of the Earth – The Cry of the Poor is the first Pastoral Letter by Archbishop Dermot Farrell. In it, he approaches the threat to our common home, indeed our only home, from the perspective of faith, while not excluding the insights of the natural sciences. In the covering letter announcing the publication of this Pastoral Letter, Archbishop Farrell says: “What we need to realise is that, over the coming decades, the issues currently arising from climate change will impact far more on us than those from the coronavirus pandemic. Indeed, the havoc of the pandemic will pale when compared to that of climate change.” He goes on: “If not for your own sake, then for the sake of your children, and for the world’s children, consider dedicating some time to the issues raised in its pages.”.
