Films About Animals Can Bring Out What’s Best in Our Humanity

I forgot to post this link to this weekend’s Salt + Light’s radio show:

This week on S+L Radio Fr. Tom Rosica, CSB, S + L CEO and Scripture scholar, tells us how his reflections in his new book Words Made Flesh can help the Word take flesh in our hearts. Sr. Marie-Paul Curley offers some suggestions for movies about animals and we meet singer/songwriter Sarah Bauer.

The films are War Horse and We Bought A Zoo. Surprisingly, these (and other) films that focus around animals seem to help us to reflect on what it means to be human. And they’re entertaining family viewing, too. (Especially for families with older children. For more details, check out the show.)

For those following my Monday musings on the Characteristics of Communicating Christ in St. Paul’s 2nd Letter to the Corinthians, I’d like to point you to two wonderfully insightful posts by Sr. Anne Joan at nunblog.

Her first post is taken from the writings of Blessed James Alberione, seven tips on how to effectively communicate the Catholic Faith. Her second post is taken from a talk given by Focolare founder Chiara Lubich: four guidelines for communicating Christ. Both have similarities to what I’ve written and hope to write in the coming weeks.
