THE NOW WORD ON MASS READINGS
for December 19th, 2013
Liturgical texts here
I recently watched the film Prisoners, a story about the abduction of two children and the attempts of the fathers and police to find them. As it says in the movie’s release notes, one father takes matters into his own hands in what becomes a very intense moral struggle. 
I won’t say any more about the film. But there is one line that stood out like a beacon:
- The film is very violent and contains many expletives, earning it an R rating. It also, curiously, contains many blatant Masonic symbols.
