Drop your groceries and go see "Bella"

Finally I've gotten to see the movie "Bella," and it's excelente. What a story! A lot of heart and soul. Fun touches of humor, too. And it's really well made.

I'm going to go back as soon as possible. Hope you get to see it or you already have.

Where I saw it, the audience, a mainly young one, burst into applause at the end. It's a movie that no one will forget.

Go to and you can find where it's playing nearest you. Enjoy!

Also, if you want to know what kind of a guy Eduardo Verastegui is since his re-embrace of the Faith, just read his Christmas message from last year (I found this on the Net but now I can't find the source):
Christmas message 2006 from Eduardo Verástegui
December the 24th 2006

I wish all of you a Merry Christmas, spending together with your family. May God enter your heart, bringing His message of Love, Peace, Happiness, good health, and a lot of good luck on all your undertakings.

We are obliged to step up our efforts and will-power of the soul to help the unfortunate, the sick and the poor, and to strengthen family ties, to practice charity, and to live with integrity.

These aspects will make Christ enters our hearts, allowing Him to be become part of our soul.

The celebration of the great Occurrence of Christmas would be a good motivation to start the inner conversion. Christ will surround you with His brilliant Light, to bring Peace to all persons of good will, to all of those who are resilient, and fight bravely against all that keep them separated from Christ.
If God is with us, who can be against us?

With love
Eduardo Verástegui

Ha Ha!!!!
I tol you mang!!!

The majority of Americans self-identify as Christians and the majority of those self-identify as Catholics. Why then is abortion legal???
...Because these people don't vote their values!!!
Likewise they don't support Christian/Catholic businesses... and they don't support arts and artists who support and endorse their values.
Bella is being flown in a limited run in a limited number of theaters to see if the people who share its viewpoint will vote with their pocketbooks. WILL WE???
A slew of recent America-hating movies have TANKED at the box office and that sends a strong message to Hollywood and those who provide the financing what the moviegoing audience wants to see and will support.
Let's be more alert about how our lifestyle (including the entertainment and entertainers we support financially) reflects what we believe and who we are.
Tell your priests and alert your churches. Time is of the essence-

I have seen it 4 times, and I most definately enjoy it. It is a great movie with a very positive message. I'd like to call it the needle in the haystack of movies these days.
