Need a spiritual experience this Lent? Come see “Into Great Silence”, an incredible documentary by Philip Groning! With an 89% rating on Rotten Tomatoes and an award from the Sundance Film Festival, “Into Great Silence” is “an intimate portrayal of the everyday lives of Carthusian monks of the Grande Chartreuse, high in the Swiss Alps”. The film has neither a commentary nor a soundtrack, fully enveloping the viewer into the lives of these highly ascetic monks and leaving them feeling centered, at peace, and more appreciative of silence in the midst of today’s hectic world.
Take a minute and prepare yourself for Holy Week with this incredible film!
