Father Thomas Rosica, CSB, hosts an in-depth discussion with Michael Dyckerhoff, the organizer of the once-in-ten-years the Passion Play put on by the inhabitants of Oberammergau, Germany. The Oberammergau Passion Play was first performed in 1634 and is the result of a vow made by the inhabitants of the village that if God spared them from the effects of the Bubonic plague sweeping the region, they would perform a passion play every ten years. The play involves more than 2,000 actors, singers, instrumentalists and technicians – all residents of the village.
