A new documentary on the PBS show Independent Lens, will feature a Catholic priest, Fr. Steven Gamez of St. Philip of Jesus Parish in San Antonio, TX.
The show will air on Mon/Tues, Dec 20-21 · 9:00pm - 11:00pm both nights. More on the show:

It takes a true calling to make faith a way of life. The Calling is a four-hour documentary series that follows seven Muslims, Catholics, Evangelical Christians, and Jews on a dramatic journey as they train to become professional clergy. Embarking on life paths that demand tremendous personal sacrifice and commitment, these seminarians must uphold timeless truths in an era that values quick fixes and hot trends, and face a public that challenges the very relevance of their mission. A new look at an old job, The Calling takes viewers into the unknown world of seminaries to tell entertaining and compelling personal stories of how faith is lived in today.

The Calling intercuts its characters’ stories from their first days of training, through years of study, and into their early practice as religious professionals. We follow them within and beyond the walls of their schools, confronting the sacrifices they’ve made to pursue this path. We see them debate theology and philosophy, learn to deliver sermons, perform their first weddings and funerals, and counsel people in crisis. We also experience them as young people at the crossroads of their lives, struggling with dating, partners, family, and other challenges of coming of age.

Enjoy your popcorn, but as the TV show was more than 2 months ago, don't expect much comment.

Anyone see it? I distrust secular TV when it comes to something like this. Secular TV is so prone to using dissenting clergy for its programs.

Peace,
