This evening, we attended two events about faith and the arts.
The first event was a reading and Q&A session with Fr. James Martin, S.J., at the Pauline Books & Media Center on 52nd Street. Fr. Martin, an editor of America magazine, is the same priest interviewed by Steven Colbert in the post below.
Fr. Martin read from his new book "A Jesuit Off-Broadway." It's about his experience as a theological advisor to the cast of the 2005 play "The Last Days of Judas Iscariot."
After that, we walked a few blocks west to attend a gathering of the Cathedral of St. Patrick Young Adults over at St. Pat's parish house. The discussion there was on the upcoming movie "Bella."
The independent film won the People's Choice Award at the Toronto Film Festival. Here's the trailer:
"Bella" opens Friday, October, 26. Yours truly hopes to check it out that night.
