In his 1950 acceptance speech for the Nobel Prize for Literature, William Faulkner acknowledged the physical fear paralyzing humanity since the dropping of the atomic bomb five years prior: “The only question is when will I be blown up? There are no longer questions of the human spirit in conflict with itself.” Faulkner issued a clarion call for the writer and artist to remember that “the basest of all things is to be afraid and then to forget it forever and write only about the old verities and truths of the human heart – love and honor, pity and pride, and compassion and sacrifice.” The films in this series remind us of the joy that awaits us once we engage – however slightly – in self-emptying love and remember we are created in the image and likeness of God.

Hosted by Cormaria Retreat Center’s chaplain, Father Larry Lewis, MM, monthly on a Wednesday evening from 7 pm to 9 pm. Following is a list of the films that will be shown:
