In the impoverished village of 17th century Cupertino, Italy, Joseph’s peasant mother convinces the Abbot (Ricardo Montalban) to accept her son (Maxmilian Schell) into the monastery. With the support of a kindly bishop who sees in him a great deal more than others, and by a series of miraculous events, the simple but pious Joseph is ordained a priest. Some are convinced that the miracles are from the devil, not God, until a final miracle reveals to all Joseph’s true sanctity.

“Saints and Saintly People: Dorothy Day
Woman of Justice and Peace”
Tuesday, September 25, 2018
9:00 – 11:30 a.m.
Presenter: Michaele Wicks
Dorothy Day was an American journalist, social activist, and Catholic convert. As co-founder of the Catholic Worker Movement, she earned a national reputation as a political radical. Her work in the Catholic Worker Movement combined direct aid for the poor and homeless with non-violent direct action on their behalf. Pope Benedict XVI used her conversion story as an example of how to “journey towards faith . . . in a secularized environment.” Pope Francis included her in a short list of exemplary Americans, including Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Thomas Merton. The Church opened the cause for Day’s possible canonization and now refers to her with the title “Servant of God.”
Michaele Wicks earned a Master of Theological Studies degree from Washington Theological Union, following sixteen years as a Critical Care Nurse. She has taught as adjunct faculty in the Theology Department of Loyola University, Mount St. Agnes and in the Continuing Education Department of Washington Theological Union.
