“We wish therefore and prescribe, that all observe the law of the Church, and that at home or in the church they shall always wear the cassock, which is proper to the clergy. When they go out for duty or relaxation or on a journey, they may use a shorter [coat] which is to be black in color, and which reaches to the knees, so as to distinguish it from the dress of the laity. They should reject the more elegant and worldly styles of garments, which are found today. We enjoin upon our priests as a matter of strict precept that, both at home and abroad, and whether they are residing in their own diocese or outside of it, they shall wear the Roman collar.”
— Third Plenary Council of Baltimore (1884)
"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:
