Catholic Filmmaker To Be Interviewed on Live CatholicTV Talk Show
On August 17th, Catholic filmmaker David James will appear on the CatholicTV talk show “This is the Day”.
James’ film company, Our Lady’s Tears (OLT) has produced a film about human suffering, and is currently working on a film about St. Germaine Cousin. OLT’s website calls St. Germaine’s unique story the “True-Life of Cinderella” because St. Germaine was treated with cruelty by her stepmother and forced to sleep in a barn.
This is the Day airs at 10:30AM ET at CatholicTV.com and on CatholicTV. The show is rebroadcast at 7:30PM.
The Labouré Society will also be featured on This is the Day. The Labouré Society exists to provide financial assistance to individuals who must eliminate student loans in order to pursue their vocation to priestly and/or religious life in the Catholic Church.
Upon discovering through a series of providential events that dioceses and religious communities require aspirants to be free of debt before entering formation, Minnesota businessman Cy Laurent began helping these aspirants resolve their financial impediments. It was simply unacceptable to Cy that the vocations Catholics had been praying for were being abandoned because of the crushing expense of a college education.
Cy Laurent, will be interviewed on This is the Day.

OLT’s documentary about human suffering is entitled “Theology of Human Suffering: Understanding the Redemptive Nature of Human Suffering”. It was produced and written by David James.
The film looks at the “prevalence of the epidemics of obesity and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in American society, and their relationship with deep moral, physical, and spiritual sufferings”.
