“The choir shall henceforth sing or say no anthems of our Lady or other Saints, but only of our Lord, and then not in Latin; but choosing out the best and most sounding to Christian religion they shall turn the same into English, setting thereunto a plain and distinct note for every syllable one: they shall sing them and none other.”
— 1548 Edict of King Edward VI (a heretic) for Lincoln Cathedral
"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:
