Throughout Lent, we have the opportunity to walk with Christ towards Calvary, share in His suffering and appreciate His sacrifice. Bishop Hying shows the viewer how, through Kenosis: an emptying of our own will, we become open to the will of God. This film is for all parishioners looking to deepen their faith, understand their suffering, and discover, through Christ, the meaning and purpose of their own lives. By coming in poverty, Humility and service, what Jesus is trying to teach us about the meaning of life? Who are the poor in your life who are calling out for love? Where is Christ on His distressing disguise? How does the cross of Christ transform our suffering, give us hope? This DVD not only encourages you to ponder thought-provoking questions during the short film, but also includes 3 key questions from Bishop Donald Hying for further reflection and discussion. ANIMA is a series of films that help us break through the noise of our everyday life in order to hear the voice of truth and love.
