The Catholic Church transcends nationality and culture while embedding itself in both. This is not simply a theological idea: it is a daily experience. Why should a saint like St Charbel suddenly become popular in Peru? There is nothing in common between Lebanon and Peru, except the grace of God. As ours is the only Peruvian monastic community, those witha devotion to Saint Charbel look to us to help them. In a spirit of cooperation, we present this film about the person, another saint, who helped, under God, to form St Charbel. For those who do not know, the Maronite Church is the only Eastern rite church in communion with Rome that does not have its equivalent outside the Roman communion; and it claims that at no time was it ever separated from the Roman See. For me, the one proof of a church's authenticity is sanctity and the presence in its midst of saints. St Seraphim of Sarov, by himself, authenticates Russian Orthodoxy. Saints Hardini and Charbel authenticate the Maronite Church. In this film you will see one proof of the authenticity of the Maronite Church. Happy watching!!
