Book and Movie Recommendations

Book Recommendation: Jesus: A Pilgrimage by James Martin, sj, is an entertaining read. It is intended for a general audience and draws upon scripture studies, his own life experiences and a recent two-week pilgrimage to Israel. His trademark humour is very much a part of the book. It gets 5 stars on amazon.com based on 348 reviews. I picked my copy up at Chapters, available on kindle etc.

Movie Recommendation: The Vatican Museums is a 3D movie playing occasionally at some Cineplex theatres. It is just over an hour long with excellent photography greatly enhanced by the 3D effect. (The 3D glasses can be used over regular glasses and are recycled). Admission is a little pricier than regular movies but cheaper than a trip to Rome!

Kathleen sees Marguerite Bourgeoys’ era as an Age of Destruction as is ours today. In Marguerite’s time the way of life of the aboriginal peoples in the New World was being destroyed and Marguerite set about building up an alternative life.
