Discovering “The Human Experience”

posted by jmcgee

It’s been floating around for a couple of years in various forms, and popping up at private screenings and film festivals, but now it appears “The Human Experience” will finally arrive in movie theaters next month.

I had the chance to see it a few months back at a screening in Brooklyn. The documentary, from Brooklyn’s Grassroots Films (the folks behind “Fishers of Men” and the great Catholic Vote videos) is definitely one to put on your must-see list. It’s not without flaws, but it’s a beautifully realized celebration of life, and living, and learning. You will be uplifted and deeply moved. Look for it at a theater near you in April.

Meantime, check out the trailer, below.

Big day in the Big Easy: 10 new deacons
Deacon Mike Talbot has the scoop: 10 men today were ordained as Permanent Deacons for the Archdiocese of New Orleans. This group of men was formally selected on the day the evacuation of New Orleans began as Hurricane Katrina approached. The immediate aftermath of the storm for this class would be

Gaudete! And let's break out a carol or two...
"Gesu Bambino," anyone? This is one of my favorites, and nobody does it better than these gals: Kathleen Battle and Frederica von Staade. Enjoy.
