Default A Hundred Years Already

June First 2009

A Hundred Years Already



(A Film by Sandrine Altchoukian)

Bright Star landed upon Earth a Hundred Years ago,

Beauty, Purity, Immensity of Love kneaded a Man,

Glory to God for This Gift, This Miracle, This Gem!

Would Humanity fathom the Power of This Gift?

Calmness and sweetness after the fury here below,

A Hundred Years already and what is left for us?

Bright Star illuminating our path, guiding our steps towards the best of ourselves . . .

Thank you for this revealed clarity,

Thank you for our Faith revived!

Let us Praise God, let us raise together a Prayer of Gratitude,

Thank you for life regained,

Thank you for the awakening,

Forgiveness . . . For so much pain endured to save our lost souls!

A Hundred Years already . . .

Like a breeze over the wings of the graceful butterflies,

Appeared for our delight,

Disappeared too soon, Ultimate Liberation from the hold of these terrestrial chains,

A Hundred Years ... A moment on Earth,

Bright Star always watching over us,

The rippling shimmers over water glowing fiery red tirelessly whisper Your Message to us,

A Hundred Years in an instant,

Glory to God for This Gift to Humanity on the First of June 1909 when Our Beloved Guiding Prophet was born on Earth,

Eternally present in our hearts, in our souls,

Bright Star dissipating the darkness of this world,

In unison, let us lift on this First of June 2009 a Prayer of profound thanks,

Hoping to always be worthy of this Divine Gift bestowed upon Humankind,

A Hundred Years already and for Eternity . . .

Thank you David.

This film is the fruit of a communal energy put into action for the celebration of The First of June 2009, which marks the Centennial of the Birth of our Beloved Guiding Prophet.

The music was developed around an inspired and inspiring improvisation by Astrid on the traversal flute.

The movies and images were captured towards the end of the month of May 2009 on a beach where nature has remained wild and magnificent ... all the way up to the beauty of the clouds in the infinite sky which we were privileged to capture directly ...

Profound thanks to Mario, whose Talent, artistic Gifts and Expertise have been, once more, put into action during the production of this film ... I take this occasion to express to him my gratitude for the know-how that he has been giving me since many years, sharing his experience in a vast field of knowledge with much generosity ... and by the way, I think we are all interconnected and part of a long chain of knowledge, where you David, are also involved because Mario often tells me that you were the one who introduced him to MIDI !

Happy June First to All!
