12 Catholics To Watch in 2012: Father Edward Siebert

FILMING GOD IN ALL THINGS

For Father Edward “Eddie” Siebert, it’s always a pleasure working with Catholic and Jesuit organizations because there’s sense of trust and knowing that their goals are common and united. “So, together we are all making a real difference in the world.” Catholicism “gives all of us…a sense of belonging to Christ and using his graces to help others find their own spiritual identity in a very challenging world.”

As the CEO of Loyola Productions, Inc. – a nonprofit media company that builds on the Jesuit tradition of effective involvement in the communication arts – “I want to make an impact, in our community, our nation, our world. I’d like Loyola Productions, Inc. to become the go to place for thinking Catholics – people who are interested in quality media, excellent resources on spirituality, inspiring stories. Catholics quite often share a sense of social justice, and within that view, I can use Loyola Productions to bring attention to various causes.”

His interest in film has allowed him to express his faith through some relatively cutting edge material. “It’s a fine line I walk between mainstream entertainment and spiritually empowering content. As a Jesuit priest, I am fortunate enough to be working pastorally as a filmmaker and combine my love for service with my desire to work in the media.”

As a Catholic to watch in 2012, “I will continue to search for God in all things. It is through this willingness to be open to finding God in unexpected places that I continue to mature in my faith and at the same time to find really interesting subject matter for films. It is a blessing that my interest in film and my faith have come together to form such an interesting life path.”
