The Spiritual Rosary Pilgrimage of Our Lord and Lady is underway but it is not too late to jump in the caravan and join the pilgrimage.

My contribution was the meditation of the 2nd Joyful Mystery of the Rosary, the Visitation. You can listen/watch my segment below, just click on the image.

To join this pilgrimage with almost 50,000 others click HERE. I would suggest you not miss as well-known speakers each take a different Mystery for meditation and to lead this world-wide pilgrimage of prayer.

Set a Date for the Family – Watch this Movie

by Steve Ray on September 10, 2020

Janet and I Like a good old movie once in a while, so this Saturday afternoon I 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.

If you want to see a list of some of our favorite movies and the favorites of others as well visit my website here.

Here is the trailer:
