This Week

Faith in film

The approach of Easter is a good time to explore what’s behind the recent increase in movies dealing with mainly Christian religious subjects, whether in a positive or more critical light, writes Gerald Schmitz.

Prayer and medication

A church bulletin is a prayer of sorts that carries intentions, hopes, requests and instructions for how to move throughout our week, writes Gerry Turcotte. They also feature the odd mishap.

Music for liturgy

This week’s Prairie Messenger features music selections for liturgy from May 3, the fifth Sunday of Easter, to June 28, the 13th Sunday in Ordinary Time. This is a service for subscribers only. Please contact the Prairie Messenger circulation office for information.
