Anyway you can look it up on how to watch if interested.

    It tries to stay true to the Gospels but it also does fill in the blanks between with backstories, etc. Not a straight telling of the Gospels but nothing contradictory. Diverse cast and the whitest people in the show are Romans. Does present the disciples as real people with the baggage they had prior to meeting Jesus. Jesus is also depicted more "human" as far as his interactions with people. Anyway if you need a bit of a pick me up you might enjoy it. Most inspiring and entertaining series I have seen about Jesus
    I caught an episode of this and was pleasantly surprised. I have to go back and finish it.

    There are some very moving scenes in there that honestly got me a bit misty eyed. Just love the way they give a different version of characters that you have seen over and over again. You get to see the sinfulness of them prior. You get to see why they transformed to follow Jesus. Does a very good job with putting a human element to everything. On how you had to give up your life and everything you knew to follow. On top of it there is actually some humor thrown in which you never really see. Anyway since I never heard about it until 2 weeks ago, figured I would throw it in here

    When you mentioned the humor it made me think of this scene from The Passion Of The Christ. Obviously not in the Gospels but really exemplifies the mother and son relationship beautifully.

    Nolte: Connecticut ‘Satanic’ Desecration Marks 11th Attack on Christian Church

    John Nolte 18 Jul 2020




    “St. Joseph’s Church … was vandalized this week, as an unknown individual or individuals painted ‘satanic’ and ‘anarchist’ symbols on its doors,” reports the New Haven Register.

    According to St. Joseph’s pastor, Rev. John Paul Walker, the church was desecrated using pink paint, including a pentagram and the symbol for anarchy.

    The church announced in a Facebook post:

    Between the hours of 9 PM last night and 6 AM this morning, a person or group of persons had painted anarchist and satanic symbols on the doors of St. Joseph Church in New Haven. This follows an apparent trend of desecrating Catholic spaces throughout the nation, as evidenced by incidents in Chattanooga, Queens, Boston, Sacramento, and Ocala. The underlying motive of these sacrilegious attacks is clear: to intimidate and instill fear in the hearts of those who worship Christ.

    After being shut down on Thursday, Walker said the church reopened Friday after being blessed with an exorcism prayer.

    Walker told the New Haven Register that the vandalism occurred after “a disruptive individual had attended services in the days leading up to the incident, prompting calls to police.” Police confirmed a call about the disruptions.

    News 8 confirms local police are investigating the vandalism incident.

    The “apparent trend of desecrating Catholic spaces” referred to in the St. Joseph Facebook post is becoming a little more than apparent.

    Here’s the rundown of attacks on the Christian church over just the last two months — ten in the last month — which coincides with the lawless rioting, vandalism, and looting at the hands of the corporate media’s and Democrat Party’s Brownshirts in the left-wing Black Lives Matter and Antifa terrorist groups:

    July 16: Statue of Christ decapitated inside a Florida church

    July 15: Statue of Virgin Mary decapitated outside Tennessee church

    July 12: Statue of Virgin Mary lit on fire in Boston

    July 11: Suspect arrested after detectives “say he plowed a minivan through the front door of Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Ocala, doused the foyer with gasoline and set it on fire, causing extensive damage”

    July 11: Arson suspected in devastating fire at San Gabriel Mission in California

    July 10: Statue of Virgin Mary desecrated with spray paint in Brooklyn

    July 4: Statue of St. Junipero Serra toppled in Sacramento, California

    June 20: Statue of St. Junipero Serra toppled in Los Angeles, California

    June 19: Statue of St. Junipero Serra toppled in San Francisco, California

    May 31: St. John’s Church firebombed in Washington, DC

    St. Junipero Serra is a specific target — he founded the San Gabriel Mission 249 years ago — because of the lies going around about his treatment of missionary Indians at the time. The truth is that St. Junipero risked his life to bring God to the North American natives and even confronted his own government about their treatment. The smears against him are nothing short of a blood libel.

    Anyway, remember when we were attacked as hysterics after we warned this madness would not stop with Confederate statues and monuments?

    Once you allow any kind of lawlessness, it becomes a Pandora’s box. The establishment media and Democrats know this, which is why they applauded the tearing down of Confederate statues and then attempted to gaslight the public into believing it would stop there. The Church was always the ultimate target, which is why the media are now encouraging these attacks by ignoring them.

    Obviously the Gospels don't have every word that Jesus uttered. I know people get weirded out when something is shown of him that isn't portrayed in the books but he had to have been somewhat personable. It wasn't like he was a carpenter preaching to every person who came in for a table when he was an adult until he started his ministry. Plus when you think about it, while he had certain advantages being the Son of God, he had to be somewhat likable as well. While the message was of utmost importance, how you deliver it, how you interact with people, etc is a good part of drawing people to you.

    Jesus had to have had the "it" factor.

    Jesus also had to be "Elvis" good-looking at least 6 ft too. You can't be The Son of God and look like Ron Jeremy. Even God has his limits.

    People don't follow ugly.

    Default Sacrilege




    Dumb liberal parish.
    Not surprised. I don't see a tabernacle anywhere in sight of the altar, and that can be a pretty good indication of a parish's tendency towards sacramental abuses.
