Catholic Connection – April 3, 2015 – Hour 1

+ Segment #1 of 4

"The Theology of 'The Passion of the Christ'"

  • Description: A serious, scene by scene, in-depth theological study of the Mel Gibson film The Passion of the Christ, Dr. Miller's analysis not only focuses on the more obvious Marian, Eucharistic, and Incarnational themes, but she also discusses and explains the more difficult images and gestures of the movie. Written in a very reader-friendly style, the book also discusses the film's depiction of the Jews and Romans from a theological and cultural perspective and examines the various sources of The Passion, notably the Dolorous Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ by Anne Catherine Emmerich. One chapter examines how the movie has changed people's lives and an Appendix compares The Passion of the Christ to other movies about the life of Jesus. (Originally aired March 24, 2015)

Oklahoma Catholic Women's Conference

  • Description: In February of 2009, Robin Beck innocently walked into a Catholic Church to receive ashes. At the time, she was entrenched in the gay lifestyle and had no intention of ever leaving, let alone becoming a Roman Catholic. But God had other plans. A few months later, she began RCIA, having repented of and abandoned the gay life. In the months that followed, she would be completely transformed by the healing power of Christ in the Blessed Sacrament. The author of “I Just Came for Ashes”, Ms. Beck uses humor and grace as she shares her powerful conversion from a same-sex lifestyle to full communion in the Catholic Church.
