The following is a transcript of Fr. Justin Belitz’ speech from W: The Movie (2009).
“Jesus came and Buddha too, along with Abraham, not to mention Rumi, Francis, Clare, and Muslim saints: All intent on bringing peace to our battered world. Still today, we long to see just the faintest glimmer. Well my friend, you have to know how to do the task. Peace is here, believe you me, but it’s all inside.
Jesus said: The kingdom’s here. It is within us all. Deep inside everyone-endless peace presides. In our midst are two worlds: One you see all day, but yet there’s another realm. That’s the one of spirit. Hidden all around the globe are people full of love, reaching out to help their friends and even all their foes. You may not hear about these folks: those like Jimmy Carter using private funds to fight African disease. Or, artist’s works like Al Eaker’s bible modernized. There are millions just like these-freely giving peace. No big bang or press release; just the flow of love.
You can be a peacer too. All you have to do is quiet down and go inside. Let your peace abide. “
More behind-the scene photos of David Ross’ film: “Unrequited.” The plot, so to speak (and if one is really required) has something to do with BlueMahler’s descent in Wonderland. As for the unrequited part-let us say it has something to do with a pretty girl named Alice (Jessica Froelich). Photography by James Mannan (who also appears in the film), and J. Ross Eaker
