Yesterday I went to my local art house and saw Soul Kitchen, a 2009 comedy centered on a delightfully motley crew inhabiting a shabby restaurant called "Soul Kitchen" in an area of Hamburg, Germany, that development forgot, but not for long. Within a lavish display of sex, drugs and rock and roll that might outrage many of my readers, is the story of a flawed band of heroes, who, with divine intervention, are transformed by love as they resurrect their home, the Soul Kitchen.
TALE II: SOUL KITCHEN, THE SACRED
No sex or drugs at Our Lady of Vilnius, though we have hosted some funky music in our basement hall. A mix of local residents, Lithuanians, Lithuanian-Americans and people blown in by the Holy Spirit gathered here for 5 generations to celebrate the Eucharist and form an unlikely extended family of faith. May we preserve this home and this ethos for the future. Pray for the resurrection. Veni creator spiritu!
