To celebrate the DVD release of the inspiring, award wining movie, The Way, this week, I will be giving away three DVDs. All you need to do to is to comment on this post to enter.
The buzz on The Way reached the Vatican this past weekend when Cardinal Timothy Dolan made a reference to the film in his historic address before Pope Benedict XVI and the entire College of Cardinals at the “Day of Reflection and Prayer.” Cardinal Dolan’s reference of The Way was folded into a highly anticipated address on evangelization.
In his remarks, Cardinal Dolan said, “A movie popular at home now is The Way, starring a popular actor, Martin Sheen,” Dolan said. “Perhaps you have seen it. He plays a grieving father whose estranged son dies while walking the Camino di Santiago di Campostella in Spain. The father decides, in his grief, to complete the pilgrimage in place of his dead son. He is an icon of a secular man: self-satisfied, dismissive of God and religion, calling himself a ‘former Catholic,’ cynical about faith… but yet unable to deny within him an irrepressible interest in the transcendent, a thirst for something – no, Someone – more, which grows on the way.”
