Movies coinciding with real life current events . . . “October Baby” and “For Greater Glory”


People who have gone to see "October Baby" again thought they wouldn't cry since they had already seen it, but they did cry.


"October Baby" is truly a God anointed movie with a beautiful, moving and powerful message.


It was wonderful to see the coalition of churches working together to bring this movie to Del Rio and all the people who went to see the movie.


After seeing the previews let's hope the movie "For Greater Glory" comes to Del Rio.


The movie website describes "For Greater Glory" as "A chronicle of the Cristeros War (1926-1929), which was touched off by a rebellion against the Mexican government's attempt to secularize the country."


Isn't that exactly what the American government is attempting to do with the HHS Mandate? Trying to take away our most cherished right of religious liberty and freedom of conscience.


April is Abortion Recovery Awareness Month and how providential that the movie "October Baby" was shown in Del Rio during the month of April.


And the movie "For Great Glory" is scheduled to be in theaters in June.


The “Stand Up for Religious Freedom” Rally is scheduled for June 8 at 12 noon at Greenwood Park in Del Rio and the U.S. bishops have issued a call to action to defend religious liberty and are urging laity to work to protect the First Freedom of the Bill of Rights as well as participate in a “Fortnight for Freedom” from June 21, the feast day of St. Thomas More and St. John Fisher, and ending on July 4 Independence Day to focus “all the energies the Catholic community can muster” on this issue.

God truly works in a myriad of marvelous and mysterious ways.





May we all continue the work God has given us to do, all for the greater glory of God and the salvation of souls.
