Summary:

Six stories of conversion from the Gospels as told by Father Robert Barron. The common theme in each story is the turning of all one's attention and energy toward an ever deeper, personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
 
In his characteristically energetic style, Fr. Barron explains how conversion is not so much a one time event, but a life-long process. "Jesus Christ calls us in thousands of different ways to follow Him, as we strive on the path for spiritual excellence," explains Fr. Barron . This talk demonstrates how six ordinary people, just like you, were met by Jesus where they were and called to a better life through Him.

Summary:

 

The Invisible Chapel - For over twenty years a migrant chapel remained invisible to the wealthy residents of a San Diego, CA neighborhood. Every Sunday, parish volunteers provided humanitarian assistance and held a church service for over one hundred impoverished agricultural, construction, and service industry workers from Mexico. Local neighbors, along with the San Diego Minutemen and a Talk-Radio host clashed with the mostly undocumented immigrant congregation. The ensuing conflict forced the migrants and volunteers out of their sacred space and ultimately caused the demolition of their long- standing place of worship. Filmmaker John Carlos Frey captures the enduring story of faith and perseverance pitted against fear and the heated immigration debate in this beautiful 31 minute documentary film, The Invisible Chapel.

 

DVD Extras include interviews with Bishop Gerald Barnes, Amanda Susskind (ADL), Attorney Claudia Smith (CRLAF), Daniel Groody, CSC (Notre Dame), & Migrant Healthcare Advocate Michael Akong.

 

The Invisible Chapel Length: 31 min. DVD Extras Length: 22 min
