Theater & Theology

In this Year of Mercy, we marvel at how God’s mercy breaks in to the lives of ordinary people in good times and in crisis. That is what we see in the films that we view and discuss at our parish TNT (Theater ‘N’ Theology). Our next TNT takes place on Friday, May 6, beginning promptly at 7:00pm. All are welcome to come to our Incarnation Movie Theater (the “Stone Chapel”) with comfortable seating and large projection. After the movie (the “Theology” part), we discuss the film’s relevance to our life in Christ and note the action of God’s mercy. Our May feature is the 1989 film Casualties of War. It’s a Vietnam War film focusing on the price of standing up for the truth, a story that asks tough questions about the casualties of war. REALIZE THAT SOME PARTS OF THE FILM ARE ROUGH. Based on a real incident detailed in Daniel Lang’s New Yorker article, later published as a book. Directed by Brian De Palma and starring Michael J. Fox, Sean Penn, John C. Reilly, John Leguizamo, Sam Robards, and Ving Rhames. Rated R. Facilitated by Fr. Gregory. Come watch a great movie with your brothers and sisters in Christ!
