Risking All and Trusting God

Business Ethics According to Pope John Paul II

By Jim Wishloff

Christian discipleship is a radical undertaking. It is not just a matter of being a trustee or manager of God’s resources by making good moral choices. The rich young man had done this and it wasn’t enough (Mt. 19:18-20). Jesus wants His followers to do more by risking more. He wants His disciples to seek intimacy and restore relationships with one another and the whole of creation. [more]

On The Front Lines - An Overview

StoryTel Foundation is on the front lines of helping those on the front lines and strives to develop and provide superior media aid to those in need. We do this in a growing array of ways for people and organizations who are engaged on the front lines of the Church, pro-life, medical, education and more in the war against the culture of death, the war of good vs. evil, the battle to save souls for Christ.

One Example is our work for Saint Peter Catholic Church which demonstrates a few ways in which StoryTel can help one client to restore the sacred via our special media aid:

  • We produced the short video: “Excerpts From An Upcoming Episode Of ON ASSIGNMENT” about and for Saint Peter’s that has already helped them to raise over a million and a half dollars.
  • We made it possible for them to put this video on the home page of their parish website with us as the video host.
  • We produced a “StoryTel Short” on their Corpus Christi Procession which is on their website, again with us as host.
  • We convinced a local news writer to write an article about Saint Peter’s which was subsequently published in a widely read Omaha newspaper.
  • We worked with one of StoryTel’s favorite photographers, Bob Ervin, to capture images of Saint Peter’s that they needed for their fund raising brochure.
  • In 2012 EWTN will broadcast StoryTel’s full length ON ASSIGNMENT documentary about St. Peter’s which will inspire millions of viewers to restore the sacred in their own lives, family, parish and community.

This is why we can honestly say that StoryTel Foundation is on the front lines of helping those on the front lines!

Inspiring story of a deaf priest.

Born deaf, new priest wants to expand church life for others with hearing loss

By Annysa Johnson of the Journal Sentinel

Father Christopher Klusman stands at the back of St. Roman Catholic Church on Milwaukee's south side and greets worshippers after the Saturday night Mass.

This is no ordinary receiving line. The well-wishers are smiling, beaming even. Some embrace him. Others cry. Few words are spoken. But much is said.

Is Shakespeare Catholic? The debate continues...

Vatican newspaper says Shakespeare was secret Catholic

By Sarah Delaney
Catholic News Service

VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- There is "little doubt" that William Shakespeare was a Catholic who was forced to hide his faith in Protestant England while leaving hints about his faith throughout his vast body of work, said an opinion piece in the Vatican newspaper.

The cloud around the Shroud is lifting.

Click link and story is second one from the bottom

VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- Using high-tech lasers shooting pulses of ultraviolet light, Italy's national research agency succeeded in reproducing on linen cloth colorations similar to those seen on the Shroud of Turin. The enormous technical difficulty in achieving the positive results also makes it highly unlikely that the shroud is a fake from medieval times, the agency said.

Omaha’s St. Peter Catholic Church Revival Based on Restoring the Sacred

Here is a blog we found about St. Peter Church in Omaha, the subject of StoryTel's next On Assignment documentary. To read the full blog go to: Leo Adam Biga's Blog

Here is an exerpt. The man speaking is St. Peter’s pastor Rev. Damien Cook:

“I just feel really blessed,” he says. “There’s always been faith here, and I inherited that from the priests who went before me. Even if the congregation was smaller the people here were really receptive to the whole evangelization process — of going out and telling their friends, ‘You should come down to St. Peter’s for Mass. Just try it once.’ And once people do they get kind of hooked.

Rev. Cook is on the left

“So the people themselves are the greatest gift to me. They really want to know more about the faith, they really do want the sacred and are excited about restoring the sacred.”



The Real Christmas Story

The Christmas Story

By Matthew

This is how the birth of Jesus Christ came about: His mother Mary was pledged to be married to Joseph, but before they came together, she was found to be with child through the Holy Spirit. Because Joseph her husband was a righteous man and did not want to expose her to public disgrace, he had in mind to divorce her quietly.

Is Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen a Saint?

Evidence of alleged miracle credited to Archbishop Sheen heads to Rome

By Tom Dermody

PEORIA, Ill. (CNS) -- Boxes wrapped in ribbon and a happy little boy are Christmas images, but the combination had another joyful meaning Dec. 11 during ceremonies closing the Diocese of Peoria's inquiry into an alleged miraculous healing through the intercession of Archbishop Fulton J. Sheen.

Pictures from the St. Peter: Restoring the Sacred video shoot

Our On Assignment documentary is almost done! We are really proud of how it's come together and can't wait to share it with everyone. Look for it in early 2012. In the mean time here are a few production pictures.

In the News: St. Peter Parish

Here is a blog article about our subject for an upcoming On Assignment documentary.

Just east above a stretch of I-480 stands St. Peter Catholic Church at 27th and Leavenworth. Its classical Greco-Roman facade is unlike anything in that sketchy near downtown Omaha district. Amid ramshackle urban surroundings the stone edifice is a solid, substantial front door for a poor, working class area made up of transients, bars, liquor stores and social service agencies as well as light industrial businesses, eateries, artist studios, apartments and homes.

When St. Peter’s pastor Rev. Damien Cook arrived in 2004 the church teetered on its last legs.

“It was a dying parish,” he says flatly.
