Heart to Heart conversations
In recent weeks we have shared links to video interviews on topics such as “The Gospel of Inclusion” with Bishop Joseph Perry of Chicago, the ministry of “Intentional Presence” with Fr. Frank Wittouck, SCJ, spirituality with Fr. John Czyzynski, SCJ, and antisemitism with Bonnie Shafrin, director of the Lux Center for Catholic-Jewish Studies at Sacred Heart Seminary and School of Theology.
The interviews are a part of a new series titled “Heart to Heart,” produced by the province video team; the team is made up primarily of members of the formation community at Sacred Heart Monastery.
Begun in March, Fr. Vien Nguyen, SCJ, has served as the series’ first interviewer. Although it is his face that is in front of the camera right now, Fr. Vien emphasizes that the interviews are definitely a team effort. “There is a lot of work that goes into each of the videos,” he said. “Just setting up the scene and adjusting the lighting and sound all takes time.” And after that comes significant work in front of the computer, editing. “I am grateful to our video team; everyone contributes toward the production of the interviews.”
The videos are generally less than 15 minutes and focus on “heart to heart” conversations about faith, spirituality and current events. “With these dialogues, our viewers can see how God works mysteriously – and not-so-mysteriously – in all of our lives,” said Fr. Vien.
