A spectacular light and sound show in St. Peter's Square to celebrate the Jubilee

(VIDEO ONLY) The first night of the Jubilee of Mercy was filled with lights and colors on the facade of St. Peter's Basilica. The projection "Fiat Lux: Illuminating our common home� was an homage to nature that attracted thousands of people to St. Peter's Square. The show lasted about three hours. Fiat Lux was inspired by Pope Francis' climate change encyclical, "Laudato Si� and its debut also coincided with the COP 21 climate conference in Paris. The benefit show was organized by Vulcan Inc, the Li Ka Shing Foundation, Okeanos, the Ocean Preservation Society and Obscura Digital. It was sponsored by Connect4Climate and the World Bank.
