A Bookish Moment

We hope you enjoy this very bookish short film, as well as Msgr. Charles Pope's commentary on it, "In Praise of Books".

"Where did we ever think to denote our sounds with the lines and angles and curves we call letters. And where did we think to combine them endlessly into words, phrases a sentences, paragraphs, chapters, books, and libraries. Yet here you and I are now, mysteriously connected through this medium called language and the written word. Somehow these shapes on the screen symbolize reality and light up our mind." excerpted from  "In Praise of Books – A Commentary on a Recent Award-winning Video" by Msgr. Charles Pope.
