Salt + Light Director of Programming Gita Hosek called me to her office around the summer of 2009.
“One of my dream projects,” she said, “is a production on Fr. Michael Prieur’s book Panes of Glory
She handed me the book to look at. Her eyes lit up when she talked about the book, the beautiful windows at St. Peter’s Seminary, the host who would work with Fr. Prieur on-camera, and the awesome choir we would find to sing within the production.
“Some time ago, Fr. Rosica,” she continued, “shared with me his idea of a production around the windows of the chapel of St. Peter’s Seminary. He said this was an important project and asked me to look into how we could make it a reality. But finding the right time to work on it is key. We need the right crew and the proper technical equipment – but, oh, it will be wonderful!”
The way she was talking to me, I knew she was asking me to take on this project. I quickly learned that I would host it as well. And work on the script with Fr. Prieur. GULP! What do I know about art history? And choral music?
A new adventure had begun!
AND a four-part series for Salt + Light was born and will be coming to our viewers in the spring of 2011.
