I’m going to do a bit of shameless plugging this morning and ask you to please take a moment to see a clip at the IndieGoGo crowdfunding campaign for “The Faithful Traveler In Portugal”.
In this latest outing, Diana von Glahn takes us all over Portugal, to enjoy the sights, sounds, and tastes of this beautiful little country, in the tradition of the best travel series. Yet unlike other travel shows, “The Faithful Traveler” does something which no other travel documentary ever does in any depth. It takes the time to stop and show us the spiritual significance and Christian history of the places which secular guides simply breeze past, or at best explain briefly and more often than not get completely wrong.
If you’ve seen previous series of “The Faithful Traveler”, you know that the show mixes great scenery, research, spirituality, and humor. Host Diana von Glahn is serious when she needs to be, extremely knowledgeable – the lady does her homework – and yet always manages to see the humor in things. She’s exactly the sort of fun, thoughtful, and energetic friend that you would want to go on vacation with, which is what makes watching these programs such a joy. It’s also exactly the kind of positive, well-produced media that the Church has been asking Catholics to create, both for Catholics and for those who are interested in Catholic culture, but which so rarely gets made.
Please consider supporting “The Faithful Traveler” as I have, with a donation to help finish the series. For those of you who like premiums, there are quite a few on offer, as you’ll see by scrolling down the IndieGoGo page. Even if you can’t afford to help financially, please do add this special request to your prayer list, and be sure to share this link with others. You never know who may be in a position to help finish this program, and we all know how powerful the combination of social media and recommendations from friends can be. Thanks and God bless!
