You are now qualified
for evangelical work...
under the auspices of the Belgian
Committee of the Messengers of the Faith.
May the Lord guide you
and sustain you in all your ways.
Congratulations, Dr. Bosman.
Now about this
other young man, Dr. Bosman.
Are you sure he's quite hopeless?
Gentlemen, I've trained a great
but never in my life
He is completely unable
to speak extemporary.
which he's unable to memorize...
and has to read
Now, gentlemen, can we send
that kind of man out into the field...
to represent our society?
Dr. Peeters, I think that's conclusive.
Dr. Bosman, ask him to come in, please.
Mr. Van Gogh, we have Dr. Bosman's
report on your progress here.
- In view of what he's told us...
- You understand...
if your teacher feels
that you're unqualified...
We regret it more than we can say.
Gentlemen, I think that concludes
Committee business for today.
Mr. Van Gogh, do you feel that the
- No, sir.
- We did what we had to do...
in view of your records.
- Yes, sir.
- Come here.
Your father is a minister, is he not?
I'm not trying to put myself
on a level with my father.
I only hoped in some way
to follow in his footsteps.
Yet, until a year ago...
to follow your father's calling.
Believe me, this is something I have to do.
I want to help the unfortunates.
I want to bring them the word of God.
Even if I'm not qualified,
there must be some way I can serve.
Somewhere no one else wants to go?
I'll do anything. Only use me. Use me!
- Do you know this part of the country?
It's a coal-mining region, the Borinage.
on the face of the earth...
than the miners who live there.
If you really mean what you said
about wanting to help the unfortunates...
here's your chance.
"has more storms than any others.
"Life is a struggle here below.
"Yet out of our sufferings...
"and go through life
and learning from the Gospels...
"to be meek, simple of heart."
Father, we pray to thee
to keep us from evil and despair.
Feed us with the bread
that does not perish, which is thy word.
O Lord, amen.
- I don't know what your name is, but...
Why did you leave?
Did I say something wrong?
I saw you leave.
What did I say that offended you?
Just because it's Sunday...
you don't expect us to listen
to the kind of pious bilge...
- you gave us just now.
Look, I worked all week on that sermon.
Listen, mister. Every now and then,
somebody comes here from the outside...
and tries to help us.
They mean well. So do you, probably,
but that doesn't help us at all, does it?
I want to bring you the word of God.
- What can I do? Tell me.
- I don't know.
Help me. Help me
to understand you people...
to know you. Take me into your homes
where you live.
We don't live here.
We only come here to sleep.
Down there, 2,000 feet underground,
that's where we live.
Can I go down? Take me.
- Will you take me down?
- Sure, I can arrange it.
Be here in the morning when I go to work.
