Bethlehem University: Beacon of Hope

Earlier this week on the blog, Fr. Thomas Rosica shared his homily for the Feast of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist. That message was preached in Rome at the Generalate of the Christian Brothers de la Salle, a religious order renowned for operating schools around the world. Notable among them is Bethlehem University.
S+L spent one month filming at this remarkable university, whose existence has been shaped at every turn by the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. As history has taught its students and educators, it's an environment where anything can happen.
Beacon of Hope, the 14-minute video was first presented in Rome on Thursday evening to an audience that included Cardinal Leonardo Sandri, Prefect of the Vatican Congregation of Eastern Churches; Cardinal John Foley, Grand Master of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem; Archbishop Antonio Franco, Apostolic Nuncio to Israel and Palestine; members of the General Curia of the Christian Brothers de la Salle; the Administration, Boards of Governors and Regents of Bethlehem University; and many distinguished guests and supporters of the sole Catholic University in Israel and Palestine. The video previews a future, full-length S+L documentary about Bethlehem University.
