St. Anthony’s to host Long Island premier of “The Sultan and the Saint”
St. Anthony’s High School, South Huntington, will host the Long Island premiere of the film, “The Sultan and the Saint” on April 26, 2017. The film is a story about Muslim-Christian peace that began in the year 1219 when St. Francis of Assisi risked his life by walking across enemy lines to meet the Sultan of Egypt, the Muslim ruler and scholar Sultan Malik al-Kamil. This remarkable encounter, and the commitment to peace of the two men behind it, began a new relationship between Muslims and Christians for the better. MDQ Academy, Brentwood, NY, will join the students at St. Anthony’s High School for this premiere event as we continue the Franciscan tradition of dialogue and the Franciscan commitment to peace.
