Movie: Collateral Beauty

Collateral Beauty boasts a stellar cast. Will Smith (superb), Helen Millar (old and wise), Kate Winslet (compassion personified) and Jacob Latimore (talented teen) among others. Its story presents heavy issues of grief and a struggle to move on, and good friends desperate to help a gifted and well-respected business associate. Actors are hired to play Love, Time and Death in response to the outreach of the main character. Will Smith’s deep trouble is eventually resolved and there’s a kind of predictable “happy” ending for everyone. Though not a must-see, I liked this movie; no guns, explosions, car chases, gangsters, evil plots or pay back schemes. And it’s set in New York, complete with Christmas lights, fluffy snow and city magic.

January Article for the Rhode Island Catholic

For the past fifty years January 1st has been celebrated as a World Day of Peace. There is hardly a country in the entire world that has not been involved in wars, police actions, uprisings or violent oppression of human rights.  Does the Day of Peace mean anything or is it merely a pious idea pushed by the Pope year after year? This question can only be answered in the human heart of every person who has lived during these past fifty years.

Some have never heard the word of peace and have lived in the midst of and perpetrated violence in its many forms: domestic and international. Some have heard the word, embraced it for a time and then resorted to violence in their own interpretation of extreme circumstances. Some have heard the cry for peace, prayed for strength and courage to whomever they name as their god, and held fast to the desire for peace by the nonviolence of their own lives.
