Movie project update

Sister Helena came home last night triumphant: all the audio for the upcoming documentary on our Founder has now been recorded. And not only that: the last tracks were recorded precisely on the 80th anniversary of the arrival of the Daughters of St. Paul in the United States (June 28, 1932)!

Fr. Angelo Biancalana (a Comboni missionary from northern Italy) served as the English-speaking voice of Fr. Alberione (who never learned English). Father Angelo, like most Italians an avid soccer fan, gave up watching Italy's team in the World Cup games in order to meet the movie deadline. The recording was done in the  "Winds of Change" studio in basement of St. Stanislaus Kostka Church here in Chicago. 

So on today's Solemnity of Sts Peter and Paul, we really have something special to celebrate--and to entrust to St. Paul--the approaching completion of the film itself!
