Gayby Baby: Movie Review

Last edited 13th April 2016

Gayby Baby was not what I was expecting. I expected to see a showcase of families which appeared to be “perfect,” but that was not the case at all. These families all had struggles, pains and worries. In that respect, they were completely normal. But there were other aspects in the lives of the four children in the film which made me think that they might also have some additional struggles because of their particular situations. The film’s website provides a quick description of each of the four children in the film: Gus, Ebony, Matt and Graham.

God Bless Emotions

Last edited 28th February 2016

I feel way too much, as in way way too much. I laugh for too long and shed tears over small disappointments, and so much of the time I wish that I didn’t. I wish that I could get through my days with that pleasant but indifferent expression I see on so many faces. I wish that I could always be the stronger, more confident, not-so-easily-shaken version of myself that I only get glimpses of.

Purity of Heart

Last edited 25th February 2016

Our sight is an incredible gift from God. The Gospel invites us to practice custody of the eyes, which simply means having the self-control to decide what we allow ourselves to look at. In our hypersexual culture we are constantly being visually harassed by sexual images.
