I stand corrected but I did heard it said! Someone made the point that actor who played Jesus was Jewish! Heard it on WABC, FOX or one of the net news!


JIM CAVIEZEL

Biography

Since his breakthrough performance in 1999 as ‘Witt’ in Terrance Malick’s “The Thin Red Line,” Jim Caviezel (pronounced Kuh-vee-zuhl) has rapidly become one of the busiest actors in Hollywood.



Caviezel can currently be seen in the title role of Buena Vista film’s “The Count of Monte Cristo.” Directed by Kevin Reynolds, and also starring Guy Pearce, the story is based on Edmond Dantes (Caviezel), a sailor falsely imprisoned in an island jail for treason. He eventually escapes, becomes rich, and wreaks revenge upon the men who famed him.



To be released in April 2002, Jim will also be seen starring in 20th Century Fox’s “High Crimes” opposite Ashley Judd. The story centers around Claire Chapman (Judd), a San Francisco attorney who teams up with a former military attorney (Morgan Freeman) to defend her husband, Tom Chapman (Caviezel), in military court. The military has declared him a deserter, charging him with participating in a mass killing in El Salvador. Can she get him free? As the disturbing top secret details of the crime are revealed, will she want to?



Caviezel was most recently seen starring in Warner Bros.’ “Angel Eyes” opposite Jennifer Lopez. He also co-starred with Kevin Spacey, Helen Hunt and Haley Joel Osment in the Warner Bros. film “Pay It Forward” as a homeless recovering heroin addict taken by a boy looking to start a program of good deeds. Last spring, he starred opposite Dennis Quaid and Andre Braugher in the New Line Cinema sci-fi feature “Frequency,” portraying a New York cop who discovers he can communicate with his late firefighter father who died in 1969.



Also in 1999, he appeared in “Ride with the Devil,” the Civil War epic directed by Ang Lee.



Growing up in rural Mount Vernon, Washington, acting was far from Jim’s mind. While still in his teens, however, he decided to test his abilities by auditioning in Seattle for a small part as an Italian ticket agent in Gus Van Sant’s “My Own Private Idaho.” He landed the role by fooling casting agents into believing he was a recent Italian immigrant.



Also upcoming for Jim is a starring role in the independent film, “Madison,” which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. The film is the true story about the economically depressed community of Madison, Indiana, and its desire to win a Gold Cup hydroplane boat race to be held in their small town.

Aha, his name is Romansch. Which is basically backwater Latin that survived up in the rural fastnesses of Switzerland.

If you can speak Latin, you can understand Romansch (helps if you have a little German too.)

NJ Catholic priest was so appalled by Mel Gibson's "The Passion of The Christ'' that he described the film as "religious barbarism.'' "I saw it as religious barbarism ... in my opinion, God did not send his son to die,''

Just talked to my mom tonight, and she ordered 10 more copies of 100 Questions and Answers on The Passion of the Christ. Have you seen it? (Catholic Exchange website.)

Thank you for that piece of information. The Catholic Exchange online purchase program includes an option to purchase items for militarymen and women. Another nice feature, at checkout, is the ability to define a charity to which a portion of the proceeds will be sent.

You can watch the program live from their web site, using Windows Media Player or Real Audio. It's a win/win situation.

Catholic Exchange offers a discount to the military?

How marvelous!

They are located about an hour from where we live.

If I get over that way I will have to stop in and thank them for all they've done.

I listened to the interview with Rush, but didn't hear him mention that he's Jewish?

Am I missing something?

I think he's Catholic... but then again we are all children of God!

Good Morning all!

Good morning!

N.Y. and NYer, thank you for the ping, and the EWTN info, as always.  
"Our whole world is entrenched in sin. There in the quiet of our hearts a woman is calling us, each one of us, back to her Son. Jesus is there for us in the Scriptures. How often do we ignore Him? We must shake off this indifference. Only the Faith and the wisdom of the Church can save us, but it requires men and women, warriors ready to risk their good names, even their very lives to stand up for the truth."
Veritas.

No it me for distrubing this site!

I never said I heard it on Rush, I heard it in the chatter over the pass year!

Please excuse me for sharing if I thought all of faulting finding was going to land on my head.

I thought I was being friendly, I am not Catholic I just thought you like to heard this.

Oh dear me!

Good evening...

I am not sure what you're talking about in regards to fault finding, and things falling on your head?

I hope that's not the case.

Just a puzzlement that I had.

You are friendly, from what I can tell.

So am I.

May God bless you, and let his face shine upon you.

Jay

I just heard the chatter in the pass year and than corrected it when I found out he was not Jewish. I am so Glad that Mel made this movies I think none too soon.

I am looking toward all people who love good recognized how political the world has always been even to the point of underminding scripture in a subtle way.

And if one deviates from the universal script they will be osterzied!

Thank you for your lovely reply

Many Blessings
