Netflix's Midnight Mass Review

 

 


 

The Midnight Mass is a Netflix mini-series that I have recently watched and have found very interesting.  Although, to be honest, I felt a bit conflicted about it from beginning til the end. 

I guess to summarize the ending, this is exactly how it would be when devout believers of God/Allah become vampires. They'd sin and then they repent back to God and accept their fate and face death by facing the sunrise instead of choosing eternal life here on Earth as immortal monsters.

I couldn't understand at first why the good priest would mistake that demon to be an angel.  Furthermore, as a priest, he should be the first to know that the eternal life that God is promising isn't one in the current world we live in which is full of pain and suffering. 

I do like the character of Riley Flynn. Look, he's made a mistake, paid time for it and yet he is haunted by his sin regularly.  He finds healing and comfort with Erin Greene whom he loves purely. So when he sacrificed himself for her and for the remaining people of Crockett Island on the boat, it was for me the purest expression of love.

I also liked Sheriff Hassan and Erin Greene but I absolutely loathed Father Paul as he was the cause of all the chaos and doomed the people of Crockett Island.

I recommend that you watch this mini-series in Netflix with a trusted VPN connection like Atlas VPN. Click on the banner below for great deals.

Upon Friar Review: Glowing reviews for The Chosen

 I like the Youtube channel Upon Friar Review.  It's about two Franciscan friars reviewing movies and shows in this channel and I love the way how they deepen my understanding of my Christian faith with the movies and shows that they review. And I am very glad that they have reviewed one of my favourite shows today: The Chosen.  I also like the fact that I share most of their point-of-view about the shows and they teach me as well about it.  So below are the Youtube links as they review Seasons 1 and 2 of The Chosen.   Also, I've linked the headings below to related Amazon items that may interest you.

The 12 Apostles

  In these days he went out to the mountain to pray; and all night he continued in prayer to God.

The Book of Job: Synopsis and Lessons

  The Book of Job is a part of the Hebrew Bible and the Old Testament of the Christian Bible. It is considered one of the most profound and challenging books in the Bible. The central character is Job, a wealthy and righteous man living in the land of Uz. He is known for his piety and devotion to God. Job's life takes a dramatic and tragic turn when Satan challenges his faithfulness. Satan suggests to God that Job's righteousness is a result of his prosperity and that he would curse God if he were to face suffering. God allows Satan to test Job's faith, but with the condition that he does not harm Job physically. Job's suffering begins with the loss of his wealth, his children, and his health. He is afflicted with painful sores and is left in misery. Throughout his ordeal, Job's friends, Eliphaz, Bildad, and Zophar, come to visit him and attempt to provide explanations for his suffering. They suggest that Job must have sinned grievously to warrant such punishment, u
