Odds & Ends: July 2004 Archives

The Village


The latest movie by the director of "Signs" and "Unbreakable" (and who's name is nearly Unpronounceable) looks pretty bad to me. The previews seemed all spooky for no reason.

But then I read this review and I'm tempted to see it. After all, how many movies have a Village Simpleton these days?

The USCCB doesn't have a movie review up yet.

And this topic bests the question: should Catholic Light have a Village Simpleton?

Stephen Sanchez, a Catholic Light reader, asked us to post information on this conference. (The text below is taken from the online promotional flier. I have no idea if there will be anyone there who is "cooler than me," though it wouldn't surprise me.)

What: Ars Conference Where: South Bend, IN When: Aug. 7-8, 2004 Who: High School Teens and their Families How Much: $75 with discounts for families

This conference is gonna be sweet! It's named after the Cure of Ars, St. John Vianney and stands for America Returns to the Sacraments. The story goes that the Fr. Vianney was travelling to his first parish assignment (Ars) when he got a little lost. He found two shepherd boys out in a field and he said to them "My sons, show me the way to Ars and I will show you the way to Heaven." So this Conference is all about getting to Heaven, baby!

It's got Matt Smith from the Real World, Fr. Pontifex of Phatmass phame, the Pete Cornelius Band and Fr. Dan Sheidt who is so cool, there just aren't words for him.

Seriously, if you live near South Bend, IN (that means Chi-town all the way to Indy and back up to Cleaveland and around Detroit to Grand Rapids) you should make it a point to be at this Conference. It's gonna be great. I'm gonna be there. And well, a bunch of people cooler than me. Check it out!
