“To Be Born” Trailer

This is a trailer for a short film that will be released later in 2011.  The trailer lasts 49 seconds. . . .

The studio offered this background on the film’s website:

The film is based off a story called “A Letter from an Aborted Child,” which had been used for nearly 10 years by Father Stephen Lesniewski for use to show women in a time of indecision. He estimates that over 500 babies have been saved because of his efforts in utilizing the aforementioned piece. Upon its’ great success, Fr. Stephen decided to have a film produced with the hope that the overall message would reach an even larger audience.

Seriously, though, the Holy Father’s reflection is interesting and worth reading.  (The actual title of the reflection is “On Sin and Evil.”)  He points out that the concept of “sin” is meaningless in a relativistic world without God.  When we ignore the shadow (sin), we lose the ability to know the light (God.)  Naturally, the Holy Father discusses it much better than I.

“I Like Bein’ A Catholic!”

The title says it all:
