Set a Date for the Family – Watch this Movie

by Steve Ray on September 7, 2019

Janet and I have never been busier, so this Saturday afternoon we took time to cook Janet one of her favorite dinners and watch a favorite old movie – black and white no less. After two hours of laughing, singing and even a tear or two we thought we should share it with you. Janet, my wife of few words, said ”Good dinner movie Honey and what a great movie.”

What was the movie?  It is a marvelous “Catholic” movie. If you’re Catholic you’ll LOVE it, if you’re not a Catholic you will LOVE it and even if you’re just a lover of good movies you will LOVE it. It shows how Catholics and Baptists can work together and everybody in the town joins in. You’ve gotta love the nuns!

50D4C213-7883-4ECB-81A2-663DF98407ECThe movie is entitled “The Lilies of the Field.“ It stars Sidney Poitier and a group of prayerful immigrant German nuns and Mexicans in the desert out West. Poitier won an Academy Award for his performance (back when Academy Awards meant something).  The Mother Superior reminds me a little bit of mother Angelica :-)

I am sure there are a number of sources where you can get this movie, but we bought it on iTunes. (By the way, we discontinued cable, and all other TV sources decades ago and now just watch good movies and fun family and Catholic fare). If you haven’t cut the TV off yet and you’re a Catholic family, I suggest you do it sooner than later later for the salvation of your kids.

This is a powerful movie that should have all Christians and people of goodwill behind it 100%. Please go see the movie, take a friend, pass the word and let shut down Planned Parenthood and their whole Evil Empire.

Janet and I just watched it and went thru a box of Kleenex. Very redemptive! Lovely family movie!?
