Posted on 02/08/2005 5:13:11 PM PST by Rosary
ASh Wednesday, will be tommorrow, the beginning of the Lenten Season which will bring us to Good Friday, the day on which Catholics around the globe, REMEMBER, the suffering of Jesus Christ. Last year to the date, Mel Gibson, made a remarkably, real-to- life, TRUE movie,"The Passion of the Christ"- and brought to the screen of theaters,the Bible,pictured as never before. Some call Gibson, the "John Wayne" of Traditional Catholism, for just as John Wayne was far and wide known for his Americanism,and his guts: Gibson showed, much like Wayne his guts,in going forward with this history,in the Bible of the Passion of Jesus Christ,movie and his love for God and country by making this film the most outstanding ever featured,in all the land. Thousands flocked to see it, this Bible history on film,and we may ask the question ,"why"?. Was is due to curiosity,was it do to Faith, or was it because it was the film that was needed in so many lives who never knew Jesus Christ and who wanted to learn the story,of the Son of God. Mel Gibson, had the guts to make this film,and it changed his life, touching his very soul and making a recall on the realization of the meaning of Lent, Good Friday and Easter, more meaningful for Christians everywhere. This post is a "Thank You" to Mr. Mel Gibson and those who helped in the film, those who went to see it and those whose lives it touched-The Passion of the Christ-let us Never Forget!
wish it had been re-released in movie theaters....I would like to see it on the big screen again.
FYI, the Knights of Columbus at Saint Louis University, St. Louis, MO, are sponsoring a public screening of the Passion of the Christ tomorrow Ash Wednesday at 6:30 PM in Kelley Auditorium which is located just east of our Busch Student Center (corner of Laclede and Grand). Anyone in the St. Louis area is invited to the free showing!! Spread the word!
Yes, that is good news its to bad it isn't an annual showing at least the 1st week in Lent!
