“In all this mediaeval religious poetry there is much that we could not use now. Many of the hymns are quite bad, many are frigid compositions containing futile tricks, puns, misinterpreted quotations of Scripture, twisted concepts, whose only point is there twist. But there is an amazing amount of beautiful poetry that we could still use.”
— Rev. Adrian Fortescue (d. 1923)
"Manalive"
published 1 June 2011 by Guest Author

Greetings, Watershed fans!

My name is Kevin O’Brien and I will be a new occasional blogger here at the Corpus Christi Watershed blog. I am the founder and artistic director of the Theater of the Word Incorporated (www.thewordinc.org), an organization which evangelizes through drama. I will be writing here about “dramatic” subjects – mostly film reviews and various issues related to the renewal of Christian culture.

For starters, here’s a clip of a movie I’m in, “Manalive”, based on the novel by G. K. Chesterton. This is a very good clip of one of the central scenes in the movie. I play Professor Eames and Catholic author and blogger Mark Shea plays Innocent Smith. The movie will be coming out soon, and as you can see it will be a major salvo against the culture of death and despair.

Hope you enjoy it:
