The Chronicles of Narnia

I saw the new movie, today: "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe," based on the tale of the same name by C.S. Lewis. IMHO, it has a lot of the feel of the Lewis version. I was not disappointed in it, but found it to be highly entertaining, and without any obvious New Age "product placements." If anyone else finds them, be kind enough to let me know.

It may have been St. Maximillian Marie Kolbe who first recognized the significance of how she said this. Her declaration more than ratified the declaration of (Blessed) Pope Pius IX in his Apostolic Constitution, Ineffabilis Deus,

An Interview with Barbara Nicolosi, by John Romanowsky

In a very interesting interview on, Barbara Nicolosi comments on Catholic investment in film making.
We have to invest in the long haul, in building up a new generation of artists by mentoring, training, and supporting them, not in taking up a small collection and then squandering it in ill-considered efforts. Honestly, it's the artistic equivalent of selling your house, going to Vegas and putting it all on the red.
