My new film Divine Beauty is out at last. You can learn more about it and watch it here. The fruit of more than one and half years of work, it is based on the Passion according to the Servant of God Luisa Piccarreta, the Daughter of the Kingdom of the Divine Will, and the Catholic visionary Barnabas Nwoye. Divine Beauty is the first Biblical film of its kind to be based on their published spiritual writings. The film was shot on location in the Maltese Islands and in Jerusalem. It features an international cast and crew, who worked very hard around the clock to bring the film home in time for Holy Week.

Advent and Christmas – 4

Theo Gold bulb2“Today is made known the mystery that existed before the foundation of the world. The Son of God becomes the Son of Man, so that he may share in what is worse in order to enable me to share in what is better. Adam once was deceived: He longed without success to become God.  Now God becomes human to make Adam god. Let creation rejoice, Let nature exult: In awe the archangel approaches the Virgin, conveys her the greeting, our sorrow’s consoling. Glory to you, O God, Who in merciful compassion became a human being” (from Vespers of the 5th Saturday of Lent).
