On this Labor Day Weekend we reflect on one who personified the Labor of Love

The ideal labor of love

Michael Cain, editor


"And He gathered them together in one place that is called in Hebrew Armageddon."


     Since the list of top ten movies for the last week lacks so much in quality with sexploitive or violent "R" rated movies dominating the scene, we thought we'd bring you the top ten movies from the entire summer - Memorial Day to Labor Day. Two asteroid flicks were among the top three which points to the fact producers are thinking about the apocalypse but maybe not in the right frame as God intends for His people in light of the chastisement and coming Triumph of the Immaculate Heart which will usher in the Era of Peace - the Reign of the Sacred Heart of Jesus - the Age of the Holy Spirit. The most deadly war ever took second billing this summer with "Saving Private Ryan" - a late bloomer, and the animals - domestic and prehistoric took fourth and fifth with "Dr. Dolittle" and "Godzilla" respectively. The Mel Gibson adventure "Lethal Weapon 4" came in sixth followed by the Jim Carrey vehicle "The Truman Show". The oriental animated family film "Mulan" held down eighth and the biggest disappointment of them all morally - "There's Something about Mary" closed fast at ninth. Bringing up the rear was the enjoyable family fun adventure "The Mask of Zorro" with Antonio Banderas. It's a sad fact that of the forty some movies released this summer few had any redeeming quality as the Hollywood industry continues to emphasize quantity rather than quality, showing no shame in compromising value for venue.

      As you'll see with each review there is almost always something objectionable about each movie so go in with an open mind and keep in mind the best advice before you plunk down your hard-earned money at the box-office: Would Jesus and His Mother Mary watch it with you? If not, think twice about seeing it.


"Pleasing words are a honey-comb, sweet to the taste and healthful to the body."
