A Play on St. Francis of Assisi and the Virtues of Loving One Another

"We Christians are called to contemplate the mystery of Love not loved and to pour out mercy upon the world. On the cross, the tree of life, evil was transformed into good; we too, as disciples of the Crucified One, are called to be “trees of life” that absorb the contamination of indifference and restore the pure air of love to the world.” -Pope Francis speaking in Assisi

David Hoover and Sharon Halsey-Hoover have become well known in our community and around the country for their dramatic portrayals of Dorothy Day, Thomas Merton and St. Francis of Assisi.  Through the gift of storytelling, they introduce and deepen our understanding of these three great figures of the Catholic Church.

St. Francis is again the central figure in an upcoming presentation at St. John XXIII Catholic Community in Albuquerque next month. The presentation will consist of a short scene from the play “St. Francis of Assisi: Face to Face” and reflections to help us challenge our indifference and invite us to become engaged lovers of Love in a world gone awry that desperately needs Love to be loved.

Here are more details on the event:
