This Fall Film Series, 2018, looks at the desire for a place of belonging and community that is rooted in what it means to be human. The Beatitude in Matthew’s Gospel: Blessed are the Meek, they shall inherit the Earth, addresses this longing. The Meek here are the ones without power, displaced, abused, overlooked, cast out, and to promise them the earth for an inheritance is to promise them a place where they can establish themselves, discover their identity, have a future where they can pass on their heritage and traditions, and celebrate life together.

Monty Williams, S.J.’s courses and research explores the dynamics of desire and narrative in spirituality using contemporary critical theory and film, His work in spirituality and direction started in his formation as a Jesuit in the early seventies. In the summers he can usually be found giving retreats and workshops throughout Europe, Australia, Asia and North America. His work included teaching workshops, retreat and spiritual direction, and facilitation in discernment.
