Pat Connolly SJ is the Associate Professor of Film and Television at Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles. He speaks of film as the historic development of ‘a third language’, speech and written text being the other two. And he firmly believes that film should be part of our liturgies, particularly the mass.
Obviously of Irish descent, on a recent trip to visit family and Jesuit friends in Dublin he spoke to Pat Coyle about his work concerning film and faith. He began by speaking about one incident where he used film in mass and the reaction he received.
