We are now in the second week of Lent and getting closer to the most important and breath-taking time of the Church Year, Easter. I am sure all of us have been struggling to remember our sacrifices and good deeds that will help prepare us for the remembrance of Jesus death and Resurrection . But, I am going to offer a suggestion you probably don't hear often, Go See A Movie. Yes, Go See A Very Special Movie, it is called RISEN.
Last night I went to see RISEN with two other Sisters and it was wonderful. It is a movie that expresses the power of the Resurrection of Jesus as the transformation of our hearts and of our lives! I dare to say that, most of us can see ourselves in the face of the searching Roman tribune, Clauvius, and feel his hope in our hearts.
I am not an acclaimed move critic, but as a Sister of the Resurrection who has studied and been committed to this the greatest Mystery of our Faith, I highly recommend adding this movie to your list of Lenten things to do.
