• Movie reviews: ‘If I Stay,’ ‘Sin City’

    If I Stay (Warner Bros.): A tearjerker for teens, "If I Stay" glamorizes the physical relationship between its two leads, making it totally unsuitable for its target audience. And it's doubtful that many adult moviegoers, for whom it may be acceptable, will want to sit through this contrived weepy, adapted by director R.J. Cutler from Gayle Forman's best-selling novel.

  • Men at work

    Some people collect stamps, others butterflies, still others grudges. For me, I have made it a kind of hobby to collect impressions of the portrayal of priests in popular culture.

  • Movie reviews: ‘Giver,’ ‘Expendables,’ ‘Step Up’

    The Giver (Weinstein) Arriving on the heels of "The Hunger Games" and "Divergent" is this futuristic thriller where young people find themselves running for their lives. This time, however, the tone is softer, and the overall meaning more profound, with a welcome pro-life message that will resound with viewers of faith.

  • ‘When the Game…’: Faith in a clear voice, despite missteps

    “When The Game Stands Tall” is an ambitious attempt to tell the story of the De La Salle Spartan football team’s winning streak through the lives of the players, the community and coach Bob Ladouceur (Jim Caviezel).

    The new dystopian movie “The Giver” has drawn praise for its deep thematic content on the value of human life, suffering, free will and the dangers of a world that distorts language to do evil.

  • Movie reviews: ‘Journey,’ ‘Turtles’

    Like an airy souffle, director Lasse Hallstrom's food-themed romantic fantasy " has an elegant appearance and a charming taste, but not much substance. Still, there's little to offend on any level, so parents will probably find it acceptable for mature adolescents.

  • ‘Damn Yankees’ scores hits for hilarity & heroism

    Douglas Wallop’s enjoyable yarn, “The Year the Yankees Lost the Pennant,” became the comedically memorable musical morality play “Damn Yankees,” first produced on Broadway in 1955, and as a film in 1958.

  • Movie reviews: ‘Calvary,’ ‘Guardians’

    Calvary (Fox Searchlight): Set in rural Ireland, this bleak but powerful seriocomedy kicks off with a startling premise. In the confessional, a grown victim of childhood sex abuse by a priest tells Father James Lavelle (Brendan Gleeson), the dedicated pastor of the County Sligo parish where he now lives, that in a week's time he intends to avenge himself by killing the innocent clergyman.

  • Movie reviews: ‘Boyhood,’ ‘Hercules’ and ‘Lucy’

    The latest crop of new films includes an exemplary sequel, a predictable romantic comedy and an interesting (if bloody) exercise in exorcism that — wonder of wonders — treats faith seriously.

Three kinds of spiritualities

Father Ronald Rolheiser, OMI

All of us struggle, and we struggle in three ways. First, sometimes we struggle simply to maintain ourselves, to stay healthy and stable, to stay normal, to not fall apart, to not have our lives unravel into chaos and depression.
