Commenting on the recent Bruce Jenner “gender reassignment” issue, Father Mike Schmitz discusses the difference between one’s perception of gender and gender reality. Gender stereotypes have altered our perception of what it means to be a man or a woman, but it is unhealthy to expect reality to conform to our perceptions. If there is someone in your life struggling with gender identity, or any other brokenness, Father Mike encourages you to be there for them.
In this commercial, anarchy, destruction, injustice, violence, and pure chaos are shown. And yet all the while our superhero, with the “bat phone” screeching in the background calling for help, is wholly distracted, flipping through the channels unaware that the world around him is descending right into Hell. He is turned inward, wholly focused on his own little world. Is this what we’re doing? Are we the superhero slouching on the couch as the world and Western culture descend into a maelstrom?

Many films over the years have featured the character of the 'monster-mentor,' the tough elder who pushes a directee onto excellence. If we see the value of this in regard to other fields though, shouldn’t we see it in regard to the spiritual life? Fr Robert Barron discusses the movie "Whiplash" in this video.
Kenneth Branagh’s “Cinderella” is the most surprising Hollywood movie of the year, not because it subverts the traditional fairy story, but because it presents it as a deeply Christian tale. It is also a great lesson on the importance of "courage and kindness". In a world where people are pushed to be aggressive in the way they deal with others, "Cinderella" is a refreshing change. Watch this film review by Fr Robert Barron for more.
