We found two books The Shepard Who didn`t Run written by Maria Ruiz Scapardella and Love in a Fearful land written by Henri Nouwen. I bought two copies one for me and one to donate to the library of the first one, later my dad donated the second one.We made a small event to present the book and thanks to technology and goodwill we where able to have Maria, the author, via skype on the presentation.
This presentation led to various more that were requested in Guatemala city and in Santiago Atitlán were we did a TV interview also connecting to Maria in Oklahoma.
Father Stanley and Guatemala are ONE, his heart was in Guatemala and physically remained in Guatemala. When he was assassinated his family wanted to take his body back to Oklahoma but his community could not stand letting go his Father Aplás. They reached the agreement that his heart would be buried in Guatemala in the Church and his body in Oklahoma.
Below is a trailer of the documentary that will be presented for the first time on September 23rd and the Cox Convention Center the day Father Stanley will be beatified.
