Mercy and Movies, Week 1

Writing in the National Catholic Register, Steven D. Greydanus suggests six movies for Lenten viewing during this Year of Mercy.  Click here to access the article.  The first week's suggestion is Of Gods and Men, a 2010 film based on the true story of the Trappists of Notre-Dame de l'Atlas during the Algerian Civil War in the 1990's.  This film "depicts the monks' sacrificial service to their (Muslim) neighbors, offering them everything from free medical care and help filling out government forms to moral support in a time of terror and jihad."
