"The Power of Truth" - New Video for Rome's Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas

Kindly Light Media, a project of the Dominican province of St. Joseph and other provinces of the Order of Preachers have produced a new promotional video for the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (aka "Angelicum") in Rome.  In it you will see Fr. Charles Morerod OP (Rector & Professor of Philosophy) of the Swiss province & Fr. Philippe-AndrĂ© Holzer OP, (Dean of the Faculty of Philosophy) of the Province of Southern Germany and Austria, among others.

I was Chaplain for the Anglophone students for two years while I was studying for the STL in Spiritual Theology.  Rome Reports came in while I was there and made this video (below) about Eucharistic Adoration (all day, each day of class) at the Angelicum which is now in it's 11th year.  Students and faculty alike both make visits to the chapel throughout the day.  I must say it creates an awesome environment of prayer and study in the the Eternal City.  (if you watch in the video, in the room where the cardinal speaks to the class, this is the same room where Blessed John Paul II defended his doctoral dissertation when he was a student at the Angelicum!)
