This video will just knock you out. Really.

A friend posted this on his Facebook page, and I’m so glad I was able to find it on YouTube.  This deserves to be seen by a wide audience.

It’s the profile of one of the CNN “Heroes” — a chef who gave up his career to feed and care for the homeless of India.

Grab a Kleenex.  Then, take three minutes and see the face of God.

  1. It is brilliant and moving. It reminds me that while we all dither out here arguing about one bit of minutiae or another, someone is eating their own waste, someone is in deep despair, someone forgets their own human dignity.

    The entire Body of Christ groans, moans, cries out.

    I blogged about this too. I hope that between all of us, this goes really viral and that it really hits home for many.

  2. WHAT?!?!! NOTHING TO SAY?? That’s because the only thing that any of you wanna do is BITCH about the liturgy and put your intellect on display as a vanity instead of using it to do something to change the world. Like this man who is probably hindu but displays more of Christ’s characteristics than those who receive him on a regular basis. YOU WANT TRADITION?? There you go. Or is that not frilly enough for you.

    Peace B w/U

    Shame on you for that tirade! You know nothing about what motivates those you are accusing.

  4. to Suzy:

    You’re right, and I’m sorry. I don’t know what motivates them. I just get tired of it. It seems like with every article no matter what the subject, it always comes back to the “flawed” liturgy. I realize that things aren’t perfect yet, but I just wish that the banter would end (probably not likely). I was born after Vatican II (1975) and then left the Church after I graduated from high school (motivated by drug-induced adolescent rebellion). After 10 dark years I was prayed out of the abyss by Her, Who’s Holy Son’s Sacred Heart has healed me. I’m moved nearly to tears at every Mass that I attend, no matter what. The “modern” liturgy is the only one I know, and it’s “home” to me and to many others. If and when it changes again I’ll willingly abide as is my duty as a lay Roman Catholic because I trust that the Holy Spirit guides our Church. I know as long as we have the Blessed Sacrament I will always be overwhelmed by God’s Love. In my tyraid, I didn’t down-play the intellect of those who “B!+<#" they're usually brilliant people. It all just seems very dis-unifying to me (including my tyraid). Thanks for calling me out.

  5. And of course CNN has blocked the video.

  6. Deacon Greg Kandra says:

    Will…

    You need to click thru to their YouTube link, so CNN gets the traffic there. No big whoop.

  7. Frank W.M. Niesink - St. Catharines says:

    It is blocked…

  8. Deacon Greg Kandra says:

    Frank…if you click on it twice, it will take you directly to the YouTube page and you can watch it there. It’s worth it! Dcn. G.

  9. It doesn’t look like a link but it is. It’s just that underlined “watch on youtube” thing that pops up. which is what you need to click on.

  10. jte,

    Unfortunately you demonstrate why many people have very deep problems with the present liturgy. Is is by, and for, emotionally and psychologically immature people. It “meets them where they are”, and leaves them there. Also unfortunately the few times I have attended the old rite, have found it to be nothing more than an exercise in self-indulgence by screaming queens and the “better religion” crowd. So I’m not going to begin to pretend to know what the answer is to the liturgical chaos that presently exists in the Church.

  11. Eurico Jardim says:

    I wanted to watch the video but was told “the uploader has not made the video available in your country”

    Can you explain why???
