The "Born" Identity....of the Christ Child

Check out the latest post from UNBORN WORD of the day. It links the "Bourne" movie series to the unborn child and those who threaten his life. I've seen all three movies, but I never made the connection. Pretty creative.

I think a lot of what makes a good catechist is being able to find the "catechetical moment" (I just coined that phrase) in every day life. So much of what we see and hear and experience each day can be used to teach people about the faith, you just have to keep your eyes open. When you can tell a story, or relate a doctrine to something that your audience is familiar with, it helps them to grasp the message and make it their own. Movie clips in particular are helpful because they add another sensory experience and they break up the monotony of a 45-min. lecture.

Btw, the new movie in the series, The Bourne Ultimatum, is off the proverbial chain.

Pax Christi,
