Converted by Les Mis

from the combox…Patrick Coffin said that Les Miserables was a ‘three hour ad for the Catholic faith.”

I agree about the “greatest three-hour ad for the Catholic faith”. I was going through an agnostic/wanting to re-consider Christianity phase, and seeing Les Mis cinched it for me. I started attending Mass the Sunday after, and have been for the past month since. What I love is how Valjean manages to remember how much grace he has been given, always, and can only sing his praises and love of God for his salvation and love. I would love to emulate that.
