Wake to Wonderment — a trilogy consisting of Matins, Lauds, and Vespers — tells the story of our place, time, and responsibility in the evolution of Earth. These videos prompt awe, praise, and reverent care for Earth. Thomas Berry, having seen Wake to Wonderment, responded: Your creation is an ecstatic experience, and we will be playing it not once again, but again and again. This is an inestimable contribution to the Great Work. (Cf. About for background information.)

Poor Promises: Faith and the Economy: is a 2-hour program on the Bishops’ Pastoral on the Economy program edited from the award-winning 26-part TV series of the same name.

Surprisingly (and sadly) relevant today.
