4:20 – Dominican Spirituality
The Dominican Province of the of the Most Holy Name of Jesus is an international community of Friars Preachers, called by the Roman Catholic Church to evangelize in the name of Jesus Christ, especially in the Western United States and in some foreign missions. In cities and university communities particularly, they manifest special concern for faith issues, justice, peace, and outreach to those not touched by the Church’s common ministry. The distinctive Dominican charism is nourished by their common life in priories, which sustains liturgical prayer, encourages simplicity, fosters contemplative study, and guarantees democratic government. Fr. Brian Kromholtz of the order tells us about Dominican spirituality.
4:40 – The Blood and the Rose
On December 9, 1531, the Blessed Virgin Mary first appeared to Juan Diego, an ordinary man of extraordinary faith. Juan Diego humbly embraced the call to serve as a Messenger Eagle. Today this apparition is known as “the Virgin of Guadalupe.”The beautiful miracle of that day is chronicled in this story that begins with Mary’s faith filled yes. This eternal struggle of good versus evil is the battle for our souls. This story has now come to video I “The Blood and the Rose.” We talk to producer and director Tim Watkins.
