Here we are in Lent again, and many Catholic bloggers have thoughts on the season you may want to read over at This That and the Other Thing. Do join us all.
This week I published Victor’s Lent Meme and invite all readers with blogs to take his challenge.
Misery Is a Choice and Mortification, Penance, Suffering Seen Through the Holy Spirit may help those who are trying to figure out what to do for the season, although both topics apply to our lives year round.
RAnn’s question of the week is, “What’s Your Favorite Movie?” Shucks, I’m having a hard time with that. I’ve always thought “The Song of Bernadette” was great and I still do. However, with my Asian preferences I must say that Kurosawa’s “Throne of Blood”, “Seven Samurai”, “Kagamusha”, and “Ran” are all splendid for scripts, story, acting, and production values. Then there’s Zhang Yimou’s “House of Flying Daggers”, “To Live”, and “Raise the Red Lantern”. All of these I’ve watched multiple times and never get tired of them. And if you’ve never seen the 1929 silent film “The Passion of Joan of Arc” directed by Carl Theodor Dreyer, you’ve missed something really special. The Criterion Collection married Dreyer’s film with Richard Einhorn’s Oratorio, “Voices of Light” for a magnificent work of art.
