The Heart Has Its Reasons
The story of Jean Vanier and the L’Arche community in France. The program focuses on the joys and struggles of daily life in community with mentally and physically handicapped people in France and the United States. We see small homes, not large institutions, daily chores and special celebrations – all framed by the L’Arche philosophy. Vanier, an international ly acclaimed author and lecturer, offers insights resulting from his years in Christian community.

 
John XXIII
 The life story of John XXIII from his youth to the papacy. Elected supposedly as an “interim pope” who would just keep the status quo and listen to the advisers around him, John proved to be his own man when he surprised the Church and world by calling the Second Vatican Council. The film stars Ed Asner as Pope John and is hot on location in Italy.


Still Available:

The Seventh Chamber
Entertaining Angels, The Dorothy Day Story.
Molokai, The Story of Father Damien
Romero

Enlightenment
that through our PRAYER we may know Your holy and true command;
