How much is Infinity Plus One? Production Company gives faith a new perspective

2013-07-25

Being on stage comes naturally to Juan Manuel Cotelo. "Gracias, muchas gracias...hoy....He says being a story teller isnt just a job, its also a passion. In fact, its a passion that has led him all over the world, producing high quality documentaries on life and faith.

 "From the outside the photograph of a family will look the same with or without God. But on the inside, when a family has God, it's different.”

The Vatican took note of his inspirational talks and videos. So, he was invited to address thousands of seminarians and novices, who came to Rome, to meet with Pope Francis.

He's the founder of  'Infinito Mas Uno' which translates to Infinity Plus One. It's a concept he first heard of, when a priest posed a simple question.

 "How many apostles are there? Just 12? Well they won't be able to accomplish much. But 12 apostles plus Christ-how much does that add up to? When you put it that way, you can't do the math.”

So, to get this point across, he has done stories on all kinds of people, highlighting their personal journey in finding Christ. Everything from a professional juggler, who had money, fame and success, yet felt empty, to a homosexual man who always felt rejected, both in his family and in society.

 "Having faith changes everything. It's not about saying, 'oh after that he started going to Sunday Mass.' No! Your relationship with others isn't the same. Even the way you see yourself is different. You look at your mistakes in another light. You look at your pain and the pain of others differently. It changes your outlook at work, what you do for fun. It just changes your world.”

The idea of reaching out to others started within his own personal circle, specifically with his friends who didn't have faith.

 "They know that a priest wears black. They know who the Pope is, they know what a crucifix is, but when you ask them, 'Do you know who Jesus Christ is? They say, 'Of course, He's on the Cross.' But when you ask, 'No, but do you really know who he is? They say 'Well, no I don't.'”

Cotelo says talking about God and living out his faith is something that comes naturally. He says that if someone asked him to stop-now that, he says, would be a challenge.
