MON_1113

Ignatius Press and the Diocese of Shreveport are happy to report the showing of the soon to be released full length movie presentation, Mary of Nazareth. The film depicts the life of the Blessed Mother. We have secured screenings for the Catholic Center, located at 3500 Fairfield Ave. in Shreveport, on November 17 and 18. There will be two showings on Sunday and two on Monday – a 2:30 matinee and a 6:30 evening showing.

Tickets are free, but donations will be accepted for the Summer Enrichment Program and Camp at the St. Catherine Community Center, a program that reaches out to impoverished youth in the Cedar Grove area of Shreveport.

Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC, considered one of the foremost experts on the life of Mary, had this to say about the film, “In light of the reality that the Virgin Mary is Gods created masterpiece and the pinnacle of the feminine mystery, there is no harder person to portray in a movie than her and, yet, Mary of Nazareth offers the best presentation of Our Lady I have ever seen. Mary of Nazareth is an absolute theological and Mariological masterpiece!  It will make you want to love her more than ever. Mary’s beauty is pure and ageless; her feminine mystery filled with wonder and virtue, and her divine motherhood is both tender and captivating. Without a doubt, this is the most stunning portrayal of the Virgin Mary on film!”

Tickets are available through the Catholic Center. Call today to reserve yours, 318-868-4441.

It is a fantastic movie and a chance to close the Year of Faith, while looking toward the beginning of the Advent and Christmas Seasons.
