About the video
Sorry, but the video interview is in Spanish of the Rev. Alberto Linero Gomez,of Bogata, Colombia. He is a Roman Catholic priest visiting Ocala, Florida for a special "healing congress" at Blessed Trinity Catholic Church, March 21-22, 2009. It turns out that he is a celebrity in homeland on radio and television, from the religious order of Eduista, founded in the 1600s in France. Everyone wanted to have one of his many books autographed, of course! (I did not hound him for this, but had opportunity to practice my Spanish skills to make the video.)
The main message for me in the video of Rev. Linero about the current economic crisis was a chance for opportunity.
"Across from crisis you will find opportunity." - Rev. Alberto Linero Gomez
Also, the current crisis is a like a test of your "personal metal"or character. The fire or furnace, he compared to the current crisis, and the metal, meaning you, will burn away the impurities and make you a better person. I personally hope this proves to be true as the heat in the furnace has been very hot, almost unbearable.
About the photo
The photo posted above the video was taken with the traditional "Hail Mary" method. It's a term used in journalism schools, really. The special method simply means you need a prayer to get the photograph. It is usually employed when you are in a crowd and have no idea if you will be able to capture the photo. You just put the camera above your head and pray you get the photo. I turned the camera on myself and the Rev. Alberto Linero Gomez. Look behind us and you will see others laughing as I am doing this. Learn more about the tiny camera I used to make this photo and the video.
