In view of my upcoming trip to Rome, I received the gift of a new tool for our mission: a light-field camera, which I hope to make very good use of. Once I learn how to use it, that is! Here is the first photo I took with it. (Click into the image to change the focus.) Tomorrow, God willing (and weather permitting), I will take it to Millennium Park for a real first test.
The relic of Blessed James which Sr Helena is holding came my way in 2003 or 2004, shortly after his beatification (which I attended). At the time, our two screenwriting nuns (Sr Helena and Sr Marie Paul) had major projects that they had asked me to pray for, so I put it on Father Alberione's to-do list, where it remains. After all, we have a ways to go before the cinema apostolate is on its feet!
I think Alberione is delighted at having a first-hand role in introducing a new form of technology into the Pauline mission! One of the women just accepted into our postulancy is a fine-arts photographer; I am sure she will have many ideas about how to communicate the Gospel visually with this new kind of camera.
