Catholic Movie Reviews: Little Boy
Last edited 27th April 2015

Skipping the awkward adolescence that often afflicts sophomore directing efforts, writer/director Alejandro Monteverde (Bella) leaps straight to maturity with the memorable and challenging Little Boy. It has the facade of a family movie of the week, but the depth and thoughtfulness of an artist who understands the power of the medium to invite emotion from an audience without demanding it. It sneaks up on you; but takes no shortcuts to earn its payoff.

The 'Cursed' Disabled Boy and the People of the Sea
Last edited 17th April 2015

Off the southeast coast of Sulawesi's sprawling limbs, I experienced a warmth and sense of belonging that I knew I was unlikely to find again on my journey through the South Seas. However, in a village where people are defined by their ability to catch fish, I also discovered a traditional belief system that left its disabled people badly isolated.

“Our Work is to Pray, So We Pray for the World” - Sister Therese (Benedictine Sister from Jamberoo Abbey)
Last edited 10th April 2015

When visitors enter the Jamberoo Abbey church, located in southern New South Wales, the first thing to strike them is the stunning backdrop of full-length glass windows behind the altar and tabernacle, bringing the beauty of God’s creation right into the heart of the church and allowing all who worship there to turn their prayer outward, for the world. The impact of the windows is no accident, according to the Abbey’s guest mistress, Sister Therese, but is an integral part of the church’s original design. “We are Benedictines and our work is to pray, so we pray for the world,” she says.

Last edited 13th April 2015
