Family entertainment…that teaches!

February 9, 2009

A few weeks ago I saw the end of an old movie called “Twelve Angry Men.”  It is wonderful story of a jury that has voted 11 to 1 in favor of the conviction of a man for a serious crime.  Just one man holds out……at first!  He continues to call for calm examination and reflection.  Because of his character and courage he is able to eventually lead the entire jury to see the truth.  This juror has to undergo tremendous opposition and hostility, yet he remained committed to his conscience and the search for truth.  I would highly recommend this film for a family night movie.  It would be a great teaching tool for us all — especially children and young people — to stand firm in the face of injustice and opposition.

 

Can you recommend other movies that would be worthwhile for family movie nights?

Coming home to Rome

December 23, 2008

Part of the role of a Guardian of the Redeemer is to guard!  We are to guard what comes into our hearts and homes!  We are to be watchful!  This is especially true of our modern media, especially TV, movies and the internet.  There are good things, for instance, EWTN [Radio and TV].  THE JOURNEY HOME hosted by Marcus Grodi is well worth watching.  For those not familiar with this program, it deals with the journey home to the Catholic Church by those who have come to discover that the Church is, in fact, as St. Paul asserts “the pillar and foundation of truth.”
