Beginning this Sunday, October 18, 2015 (8 p.m. ET/PT), a worldwide phenomena of sorts will take place as Oprah Winfrey launches a seven-night event, Belief, on the OWN network. This series will explore humankind’s ongoing search for connecting with something greater than ourselves. It is part of Oprah’s ongoing quest to have a conversation on the topic of spirituality.
No doubt, Oprah’s Belief series will be the topic of water-cooler conversations in the week to come. Catholics would do well to watch the series from a Catholic perspective so as to be able to thoughtfully discuss with others our Catholic understanding of spirituality, which is rich and deep.
To help us view Oprah’s Belief series from a Catholic perspective, I have put together this handout which you can use (and make copies of for group use) on your own or at a viewing party or with groups from your parish/faith community. I invite you to return to this post to share your comments and insights on the series.
