New Episode of Word for Word: Opening the Door

December 9, 2010
It’s an interesting idea. Perhaps some would fear it borders on – at the very least – disrespect, if not sacrilege: Mary, tired after nearly 2000 years of immersing herself in other people’s prayers, finds a quiet home, owned by a quiet woman, and kicks of her Nikes to stay for awhile. But this idea – the premise behind Our Lady of the Lost and Found by Diane Schoemperlen – is anything but disrespectful. In fact, Schoemperlen handles the story beautifully, honestly, and, also, historically, interrupting the storyline to give factual accounts of Marian apparitions throughout the ages. For both the main character and Schoemperlen, Mary is a quiet, consistent presence through whom faith finds a way into their lives.
On this upcoming episode of Word for Word, we explore the theme of how faith enters our lives. Tune in for our feature interview with Schoemperlen, as well as a segment with Marie Luttrell, who wrote of God’s presence in our day-to-day lives in her book, At the Back Door.
Watch Word for Word on Friday December 10th at 9pm ET
