PLAY #1 – “Where There Is Darkness, Light” (the Francis of Assisi play)
FIRST LINE: It wasn’t given to Chiara Offreduccio to know how her story would end while she was still living it, just as it is not given to any of us to know, when we are born into the world, what will become of our lives.
LAST LINE: Free.
PLAY #2 – “To Draw Back the Veil” (the Catholic school kids play)
FIRST LINE: The clock struck thirteen. That was the first thing that went wrong. But only Francesca heard it.
LAST LINE: He who believes in Me, even if he die, shall live; and whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die.
PLAY #3 – “That Was the River, This Was the Sea” (the Gilberto play)
FIRST LINE: My mom told me once that we never understand the important things in our lives while they’re actually happening to us.
LAST LINE: Because the only thing stronger than gravity is the heart, and because we need to remember.
