The Best Man: best of the worst this week

Top Ten Films for the fourth week of October

    The black noir film "The Best Man" beat all other challengers down the aisle of the top ten last week, finishing ahead of all comers in a very, very mediocre week in which not one film finished in double figures. The big anticipation is not so much in the theatres as in video where finally Roberto Benigni's masterpiece and award winning "Life is Beautiful" will finally be available in a week or so. This is the same film the Pope watched with Benigni and enjoyed immensely. For the Top Ten reviews for the fourth week of October prepared by the NCCB, click on MOVIES AND MORALS

    The champion of the downtrodden

        They say a picture is worth 1000 words, but the words of Bishop Fulton J. Sheen have been known to launch a thousand images in one's mind, one of the ways this late luminarydid so much to evangelize the faith. Because of the urgency of the times and because few there are today who possess the wisdom, simplicity and insight than the late Archbishop who touched millions, we are bringing you daily gems from his writings. The good bishop makes it so simple that we have dubbed this daily series: "SIMPLY SHEEN".
    "The Christian law is not 'the survival of the fittest' but the 'survival of the unfit.' The inspiration for this is He Who emptied Himself of Heaven's wealth that through His poverty we might be made rich. The challenge was uttered to the Cross: 'Come down and we will believe.' But He did not come down. If He had come down, He would have been strong. He stayed there. He would die for the weak. Through that act of self-denial, the unfit lived."

    Finally the long-awaited books "I SOLEMNLY TELL YOU..." and THE HIDDEN WAY are NOW available!

       With the messages completed, you can now order the book that contains ALL the messages. This much-anticipated 224-page book of ALL the messages to the world imparted to the Hidden Flower of the Immaculate Heart from the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary is a lasting gift that will inspire you in your faith, and all God asks of us. You can acquire your own handsome, coffee-table top copy of "I SOLEMNLY TELL YOU..." containing all 632 messages or the THE HIDDEN WAY containing 100 inspirational Meditative Lessons from Our Lord and Our Lady on Church Doctrine by clicking on "I SOLEMNLY TELL YOU..." or THE HIDDEN WAY or both books at BOOKS
