“As the subject of the language of worship was discussed in the Council hall over the course of several days, I followed the process with great attention, as well as later the various wordings of the Liturgy Constitution until the final vote. I still remember very well how after several radical proposals a Sicilian bishop rose and implored the fathers to allow caution and reason to reign on this point, because otherwise there would be the danger that the entire Mass might be held in the language of the people-whereupon the entire hall burst into uproarious laughter.”
— Alfons Cardinal Stickler, peritus of Vatican II
"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:
