Recently I had a chance to watch the new film, "BRO: Men with Hope to Bring." It is not a Glenmary movie but it does present a clear image of who Brothers are and what they do in the church and the world. It is an excellent movie for men who are discerning their call. I know that one of the biggest difficulties for me while I was discerning my call, was that I did not know much about brothers. How could I clarify my call without having an example? Eventually meeting a few brothers did help to guide me on the path to becoming a Glenmary brother.
This new film asks the question, are Religious Brothers the “best-kept secret of the Church?" And it attempts to answer the questions:What does it really mean to be a Catholic Religious Brother?
How are they distinct from the Catholic priests?
Why did they decide to become a BROTHER?
What empowers them as they live their vows in a secular world?
