Savior on the Silver Screen – or – Meeting Jesus at the Movies

Savior on the Silver Screen – or – Meeting Jesus at the Movies November 22, 2013


Meeting Jesus at the movies might seem impossible to some … but this session will look at sacramental ways to find God in the dark and secrets to discovering heroes who exemplify the teaching of the Lord Jesus in laughter and tears. It includes an analysis of “The Hunger Games” film as a cultural parable that engages the sacramental imagination (with thanks to Sr. Nancy Usslemann, FSP)

This presentation was given at the National Catholic Youth Conference in Indianapolis, Nov. 22, 2013.
