Will Wilson plays Father Donny

I am pleased to be joining the cast of Italian Lights; Not Stars. Playing a priest is not too much of a stretch for me since I was cast as God (or rather, the voice of) in the Chicago Gay Men’s Chorus 2006 production of The Ten Commandments: The Musical. Maybe one day I’ll get to be a bad guy.

As we begin the 21st century, the question arises; Have the windows of the Church been opened, and do both sides see more clearly? As a practicing Catholic, and a lay person, my response is a resounding Yes.


While it is true that many of our customs are much more relaxed, it is unusual to see people dress for Mass unless they are attending a wedding or a funeral, I never fail to be amazed at the number of lay Catholics who continue to seek a more accurate understanding of scripture and how to apply that understanding to their daily lives.


The Church is a living entity, and as such, we may on occasion, take two steps backward for every step forward, yet, that is the process of growing.


As St. Paul says, At present we see indistinctly, as in a mirror, but then face to face. At present I know partially; then I shall know fully, as I am fully known.  (1 Corinthians 13:12)
