Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

The Way

Recommended Posts

Has anybody watched the movie "The Way" ?

 

"THE WAY is a powerful and inspirational story about family, friends and the challenges we face while navigating this ever-changing and complicated world. Martin Sheen plays Tom, an irascible American doctor who comes to France to deal with the tragic loss of his son (played by Emilio Estevez). Rather than return home, Tom decides to embark on the historical pilgrimage "The Way of St. James" to honor his son's desire to finish the journey. What Tom doesn't plan on is the profound impact this trip will have on him. Through unexpected and oftentimes amusing experiences along "The Way," Tom discovers the difference between "the life we live and the life we choose.”" (more here - http://theway-themovie.com/film.php).

I've watched it twice. It's very moving.

Actually doing a pilgrimage like the Camino may seem rather strange to a non-Catholic, but ignoring that bit, the interplay of characters, each on their own life journey, is facinating.

No, I have never seen this movie before but it seems like it would be a very spiritual and scenic pilgrimage and his trek goes from France to Santiago. I think Martin Sheen's character walks the Camino de Santiago(also know as the way of Saint James) in this film after his son had died from walking the same pilgrimage. Also this is the green part of Spain though(Galicia)and I guess his father(martin sheen's)in real life is a american immigrant from here, so it sounds like a very soulful and uplifting journey to take with him.
