STARRING: Gigi Proietti (Philip Neri)
Obedient to God’s call, Philip Neri joyfully and enthusiastically became a priest. He dreamed of working as a missionary in faraway India but soon came to realize that “India” was on his doorstep in the form of the poverty and misery around him on the streets of Rome. It was there that he started his mission: with childlike simplicity he made himself poor with the poor and little ones, working with street children, orphans and marginalized people, investing his energies in their education and in their human and Christian promotion, motivating them to do good with the humorous admonition: “Be good, if you can!” Today Saint Philip Neri continues to be known as the saint of joy and charity.
