Here’s an amazing story that I heard this week. Father Jamie Dennis shared with me over lunch that an interesting thing happened to him while he was in San Diego recently for the wedding of a good friend. He went and visited the first mission that St. Junipero Serra started there, Mission Basilica San Diego Alcala. While he was there a Mass was going on so he attended. After the Mass two ladies from the local Serra Club came up to him and said, “We saw you on TV!” What a small world we have! A sighting of our video star in California! They had watched the airing of the Lolek Productions video, “Unseen,” on EWTN. It features Father Jamie telling his story of going blind and how he came to discern the priesthood. These kind, excited ladies invited him to the luncheon that they were having for the 8th grade class after Mass. They wanted to introduce him to the rest of the Serra Club and the young people, so he went and spent some time with them.
Isn’t it just wonderful how our videos are being watched by people all over the country and the world! And for Father Jamie to be recognized, just like a movie star in Hollywood!
We give thanks to God for the inspiration that Father Jamie is to so many people and we thank God for allowing us to do the work that we do in video production. We are reaching out to people and it is making a difference in their lives.
