My Li’l Bro Thom sent me this from the Diocese of Brooklyn – very impressive. Some are calling “Fishers of Men,” an 18 minute film, the best thing ever made about the vocation to the priesthood.
“God in the Streets of New York,” is a film about a Eucharistic Procession done recently in NYC – you don’t see them much anymore. This one was – by all accounts of those who attended – a marvel.
You can see both trailers and more here.

I’m really glad the Diocese used the phrase “Fishers of Men,” Jesus’ lovely pun (I adore that he is so Semitically humorous in the Gospels – there are several instances wherein he plays with words and this is one of them,) instead of ruining it with the now-in-vogue, PC (and ugh-y) “come with me and I will make you fishers of people…”
Note to any non-Catholics – the baldish young priest who is seen running and then kissing a stola (the think purple strip of cloth embroidered with a cross) is clearly preparing to hear an emergency confession at the scene of some accident or tragedy. The quick image of the man upside down on a cross is not a “satanic” image, but a representation of St. Peter, who was killed in Rome via crucifixion, but had requested to be upside down as he felt unworthy to die in the manner of the Lord.
