Movie - The Judge

For anyone who likes mysteries, and court cases, and who can handle one more dysfunctional family story, this movie is a gripper. Robert Duvall (83 years young) is totally credible as the aging judge and Robert Downey Jr. is as real as it gets playing the successful (career-wise) son who “got away” from his family and hometown. It’s a long movie – 2 hours - but the time doesn’t seem long because the story is fast-paced and opens up like a Grisham novel. In spite of some reviews I read beforehand, I liked this movie. It shows how forgiveness can happen (or not) and how we can move on (or not) in our own story.

Conversations of the Heart

The “Conversations of the Heart" group met at Sr. Sue Kidd's in Charlottetown to view and discuss the video, WHERE ARE YOU the presentation which was given to the Formation personnel by Nancy Schreck.

We will, I am sure, ponder that, as we struggle, as she said, to walk the tight rope on the margins of this new/different world to which we are called to be God's presence.
