On Family Finances and a Greek Film – Worlds Apart

On Family Finances and a Greek Film – Worlds Apart

Do you have the full picture of your family’s financial health? Do you and your spouse work together on finances or does one of you bear the brunt of that burden? In our first interview Father Chris talks with financial specialist and author of the book Pres. Maria Antokas . During their conversation Maria shares her wisdom on how couples can work together to create an open and honest partnership in finances. There is no better time to integrate her advice with the upcoming tax deadline.
Our second interview is with the renowned producer and director Christophoros Papakaliatis on his film World’s Apart.  The film is set in modern day Greece, and is comprised of three separate narratives each following a love story between a refugee and a Greek. Worlds Apart follows the characters’ difficult path to love in a time of the world’s harsh realities. This a very timely film and it shows us that even despite hardship there is still a place where truth, beauty and humanity exist.  A place where love can thrive even in the darkest hour.  To learn more about this film and how to view it go to http://www.worldsapartfilm.us/
