Please join The Frassati Fellowship and Grassroots Films for a screening of “THE HUMAN EXPERIENCE”
This award winning documentary is about a band of brothers who travel the world in search of the answers to the burning questions: Who am I? Who is Man? Why do we search for meaning? Their journey brings them into the middle of the lives of the homeless on the streets of New York City, the orphans and disabled children of Peru, and the abandoned lepers in the forests of Ghana, Africa. What the young men discover changes them forever. Through one on one interviews and real life encounters, the brothers are awakened to the beauty of the human person and the resilience of the human spirit.
There will be a Q&A with the main characters at the end of the film, along with some light refreshments.
A music-inspired Holy Hour led by the Franciscan Friars of the Renewal will be held in the church beforehand from 6:15 – 7:15 PM.
When: June 23, 2009 at 7:30 PM
Where: St. Vincent Ferrer Church Hall — Corner of Lexington Avenue and E. 66th St.
Tickets: $10 in advance at seethx.com, or $15 at the door.
Come, spouse of Christ,
receive the crown the Lord has prepared for you from all eternity, alleluia.
From the Dominican Ordo:
Blessed Mary Bartholomew Bagnesi was born in Florence on August 15, 1514, and there received the habit of a Sister of Penance in 1547. For forty-five years she was confined to her bed and with great courage bore the pains she suffered. By her spirit of faith and acceptance of God’s will, she was able to encourage and console many who came to her. She died on May 28, 1577, and was buried at the Carmelite monastery in Florence.

in Blessed Mary Bartholomew
you brought together steadfastness in suffering
and innocence of life.
As we endure many trials
may we be helped by your grace.
We ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son,
who lives and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
one God, forever and ever. Amen.
