*VIDEO* "The Flying Padre"

Hat tip to Shrine of the Holy Whapping, who hat tipped Mike for this old RKO newsreel about a parish priest in New Mexico that used a plane he bought to fly to his rural mission churches. Taking into mind the time period, and the not so great "acting", it's a great short film, by lengendary director Stanley Kubric, about the real life of a rural priest from the 40's. It's worth taking the time to watch, and say a prayer of thanksgiving for all the priests and religious that sacrificed so much, and worked to so hard to bring the faith to the people. May God grant us more priests like Fr. Stockmiller!
