God in the Streets of New York

If you haven't seen the vocation video from the Archdiocese of New York, watch it now. It's the best vocation promotion I've ever seen.

Here's some shots from the video:

awesome. when i was up in indianiapolis last i saw some pretty cool vocation posters, but not as potentially excellent as the video clip appears to be (i've got no sound, nor bandwidth to play it here)...

I believe that I took part in the Eucharistic procession that is portrayed. It was a very powerful experience, one that will stay with me forever. It took place at the time that Pope John Paul II lay dying. Each church on the path prepared a special welcome and benediction. The combination of sustained adoration, plus following Christ through the streets created an exhilarating change of consciousness that has stayed with me. Also of note was respect, perhaps reverence, that the procession received from the usual denizens of the night streets of lower Manhattan. It is not an exaggeration to say that it was wondrous to behold. The procession was curtailed by death of Pope John Paul II. I would like to see the full process repeated and completed in his name.

The young men who did God in the Streets of NY also did a great film called The Human Experience. I want to share with you a new film that is coming out called The Human Experience. It is produced by the same people who brought us the inspiring film on the priesthood, Fishers of Men. After attending the prescreening of
their latest piece last a few weeks ago, I have been left speechless,awestruck,and deeply moved. The film follows two brothers who travel around the world in search of the meaning of life. It is a true story and has re-opened my eyes to the beauty of life, family, forgiveness, and faith. This is a must see film for everyone and I applaud the young men who have taken up Pope
John Paul II's challenge to use the media for the New Evangelization.Grassroots films is having
screenings at the following venues:World Youth Alliance-BELGIUM, John Paul the Great University-SAN DIEGO, CA,
Pope John Paul II Cultural Centre-WASHINGTON DC, (just added-Franciscan University-STEUBENVILLE, OH, Manilla, Philippines,London, England. Catholic Underground-NEW YORK, NEW YORK, Chaminade HighSchool, MINEOLA, NY, Ave Maria University, NAPLES, FL.
