In our world today, we continue to ask the question that has been at the heart of our existence since its beginning: What does it mean to be human?
While the response to this question may sometimes seem to be beyond our reach, the Christian faith invites us to look again and discover that the answer is nearer to us than we could first imagine.
In this short film sponsored by the Salesian Center for Faith and Culture at DeSales University, inspired by the writings of St. Francis de Sales and the Second Vatican Council, explore through word, image, and sound the richness of the adventure of what it means to be human, lived in the fullness of Christian faith.
Video produced by Joseph McDaniel, OSFS and Sean Boyd. All video clip excerpts utilized under fair use guidelines as nonprofit educational media.
