Smallest of All
The Smallest of All is the fourth mainstage production of the Theater of the Word Incorporated.
The play is by St. Louisan Mother Mary Francis, who served as abbess of Our Lady of Guadalupe Monastery in Roswell, New Mexico for many years until her death in 2006 on the Feast of Our Lady of Lourdes.
This play is a profound look at the effects of holiness upon the hearts and minds of those who encounter it. It is a masterpiece of dramatic writing - charming and insightful and filled with a keen understanding of human nature and how the love of Our Lady and the grace of Our Lord can work miraculous changes even in the most miserable of men.
Archbishop Raymond Burke has been kind enough to say, "I express my profound gratitude to Theater of the Word Incorporated for producing this play in honor of the 150th anniversary of Our Lady's apparitions at Lourdes." We will be staging a command performance for the archbishop sometime in March.
We are offering four performances to the general public - 2 pm matinees Sunday Feb. 17 and Sunday Feb. 24; and 8 pm evening performances Friday & Saturday Feb. 22 & 23. Tickets are $15 per person, with group discounts available. Our Feb. 24 performance features a dinner along with a lecture by Father Joseph Fessio (see below). Call 1-888-840-WORD for more info and to purchase tickets.
