No Passion Yet

In answer to a query, no I have not yet seen it, and there are no deep reasons. We have a two-year old. We have to tag-team things like that. Michael saw it on Wednesday at the theater in the small town where OSV is located, but all showings here in The Fort were sold out both Wednesday and Thursday. We’re going on a jaunt this weekend, so it looks like Monday or Tuesday will be the earliest I’ll be able to see it. I also wanted to get opinions from Michael and my older sons as to whether I should take Katie along.

Oh, and the jaunt? We’re going to “Cinciana” (as Joseph calls it) to see the St. Peter and the Vatican exhibit that’s parked down there for a couple more months. I guess the reason it has to be this weekend is because there’s no race this weekend. I guess.

And just a warning – I will be shutting down the comments over the weekend, to be back up Sunday night. There are heated topics under consideration, and I’ve found I really don’t want to leave those kinds of conversations unattended!

The Fort? Is that Fort Wayne or Fort Worth? I grew up in Fort Wayne; that’s why I’m asking.

Keep an eye out for the exhibit’s description of the indulgence controversy. When I went to the exhibit in Houston I got the impression that the description wasn’t accurate. Or maybe I was just seeing things.

I saw it last week. I thought it was great and certainly recommend people to visit it. The only thing that I thought was questionable was one remaining copy of McBrien’s “Catholicism” in the gift shop. Considered that this has been pretty much banned from most RCIA programs since the indult was removed from the book, I’m wondering why it included. Yes, its sold lots of copies but I heard that much of the sales where when it had the indult and you might say that much of the sales continue from people who bought previous editions who want the most current edition.
There were many good things in the gift shop but I wondered why that book was there. Of course, maybe they decided to stop selling it but had been unable to get rid of the last “viewing” copy. There was no evidence of discounting on the worn copy though.
