Synopsis:

"Talkback and Q&A with Honduran Co-Director, Laura Bermúdez, and Voces Latinas following the 7:00 pm on Friday, 8/11. English & Spanish Speakers welcome!"

During her 70 years as a nun, Sister Maria Rosa Leggol helped over 87,000 Honduran children escape poverty and violence through an ecosystem of social, educational and entrepreneurial projects, inspiring an international network of supporters to expand her work. In the midst of civil wars, economic collapse and natural disasters, she continued her charge to help young people, such as Maria and Rosa, break familial cycles of poverty and violence to create lives of their own. “With This Light” poetically interweaves the compelling present-day stories of these teenagers with the epic life and noble actions of Sister Maria Rosa.

HEART-WARMING DEPICTION OF A WONDERFUL NUN & THE PEOPLE SHE HELPED

August 17, 2023
IT WAS SUCH A PLEASURE TO SEE SUCH A POSITIVE DEPICTION OF A NUN - ESPECIALLY SINCE THERE HAS BEEN SUCH NEGATIVE COVERAGE OF THE CATHOLIC CHURCH AS A RESULT OF THE REVELATIONS OF THE SEXUAL ABUSE OF CHILDREN BY PRIESTS. (WE SHOULD CERTAINLY SUPPORT PENALIZING THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE ABUSED CHILDREN AND THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE COVERED UP THEIR CRIMES. BUT WE MUST ALSO REMEMBER THAT THE OVERWHELMING MAJORITY OF CLERGY PEOPLE FROM ALL RELIGIONS DEDICATE THEIR LIVES TO HELPING PEOPLE. THAT'S WHY ALL RELIGIONS ARE EQUALLY GOOD). THE FILM TOOK AN EVEN MORE IMPORTANT TURN WHEN WE LEARN ABOUT THE MURDER OF A HONDURAN PRIEST BY THE HONDURAN MILITARY. IT'S EVEN MORE DISTRESSING BECAUSE NOONE WAS EVER PROSECUTED FOR HIS MURDER, AND NOONE FROM THE REAGAN ADMINISTRATION EVER DEMANDED AN INVESTIGATION. (ALTHOUGH PRESIDENT REAGAN DID SOME GOOD THINGS, HIS SUPPORT FOR THE HONDURAN DICTATORSHIP AND HIS SUPPORT FOR THE CONTRAS IN NICARAGUA BOTH TAINT HIS REPUTATION). I JUST HOPE THAT THE CATHOLIC CHURCH WILL BE AS QUICK TO CANONIZE SISTER MARIA AS THEY WERE TO CANONIZE MOTHER THEREA BECAUSE SISTER MARIA HELPED EVEN MORE PEOPLE THAN MOTHER THERESA.
