Good lessons from an unexpected source...Tiktok :)

  God does work in mysterious ways.  He speaks to us even in Tiktok. And this is what my fave friars will be talking about below.  Enjoy.  

A must see film this 2023: Sound of Freedom

 

When there is danger or any life threatening event, it doesn't matter who brought the news, even if it's someone you really dislike, that same event exists and that it should be dealt with properly.

I think this is the case with this movie.  The mainstream media is portraying it to be a movie with a "right-wing" agenda.  True or not, it still reminds everyone that child sex trafficking is still there and that we should be acting against it anyway we can.  The least we can do is make people aware of it so that everyone will place extra measures to safeguard their children any way they are able to.

NOTE: Video clip c/o IGN Movie Trailers in Youtube.

Also, it is a very good movie.  You don't see it often in Rotten Tomatoes but this is one of those rare times that critics and audience score are quite high.  It is currently raking in the box office beating heavyweights like Indiana Jones, The Dial of Destiny despite it being shown in 50% less theatres.  This stars Jim Caviezel is based on true to life story of Tim Ballard.


So whether you are a person of faith or not, I think you care about your kids. God forbid, if this happens to someone you know or yourself personally.  Child sex trafficking is there and is one big organized crime.  Who are the people benefiting from it? Who are the customers?

So I end this, with a familiar saying by Edmund Burke,

"The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing."

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. And when it was day, he called his disciples, and chose from them twelve, whom he named apostles; Simon, whom he named Peter, and Andrew his brother, and James and John, and Philip, and Bartholomew, and Matthew, and Thomas, and James the son of Alphaeus, and Simon who was called the Zealot, and Judas the son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who became a traitor.

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
