5.0 out of 5 stars A thoughtful and moving experience, 24 Oct 2009
A friend gave me this DVD to watch recently. I didn't know what to expect except that it came as highly recommended. And it's easy to see why. Based on actual events this thoughtful film gives an insight to the care, respect and dignity shown to the remains of a fallen soldier. The films attention to detail and the excellent acting of Kevin Bacon make this a worthwhile watch. What impresses me is, this care is given to every fallen soldier and it's not for cameras or publicity, it's for the person who has died and for their family.
I really hope this is released in Region 2 format

5.0 out of 5 stars A big pair of shoes, 4 Dec 2007
A wonderful film which gives an excellent insight into the election of a pope. This film was to prove prophetic in ways with the election of Pope John Paul II, hailing from a communist country. Well worth having as part of anyone's collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Daily Prayer of the Church, 4 Dec 2007
The Divine Office is time honoured and tested method of prayer that offers a thorough grounding in Catholic worship outside the mass. The 'breviary' as it is known is prayed throughout the world and, once mastered, you have the assurance that your prayer is part of the official (Roman Catholic) church's glory and praise to God.
There are three volumes of the Divine Office. Volume One covers Advent and Christmas tide. Volume Two covers Lent, Holy Week and Eastertide. Volume Three (this one)covers Ordinary Time.
Included also are many writings from different saints as well as the official church calander.
As with all worthwhile prayer, The Divine Office takes time, but with faithful dedication it will become a very rewarding experience.

Volume one is where you begin and this offers a ruberical (the red coloured instruction), guide to praying the Office.

5.0 out of 5 stars Into great silence, a great work, 7 Jun 2007
This is a film/documentary that demands time, an open mind and an open heart. In today's modern and fast-paced world, the monastic life of the monks of 'Grande Chartreuse' may seem alien, almost unreal. But the part of us that longs for God will somehow understand the deeper message this films portrays. I thoroughly enjoyed this experience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Catholic prayer for everyone, 11 Dec 2006
What a wonderful little book. Monsignor Buckley takes us on a journey through the prayers of the Catholic Church. Some of the prayers will be familiar to most catholics, others may not. The book should be a helpful resource for those wishing to explore our rich prayer history. There's something in this for everyone.
