Our Lord and His Holy Apostles at the Last Supper

A blog dedicated to Christ Jesus our Lord and His True Presence in the Holy Mystery of the Eucharist

But Christ having come a high priest of the good things to come, through the greater and more perfect tabernacle, not made with hands, that is to say, not of this creation, nor yet through the blood of goats and calves, but through his own blood, entered in once for all into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption.

Hebrews 9:11-12

The Screwtape Letters

Just read that the Screwtape Letters is going to be made into a feature film. I read this book by C.S. Lewis several years ago, during a slow turning back from atheism to the Catholic Faith. It helped. As I remember it, the humor and insight of the book entertains, even while it prods the reader to take a closer look at the ways people can justify their baser impulses. It is written as a series of letters from one demon to a lesser demon, who is trying to corrupt and capture a soul. Amy Schartz wrote a short sequel in the same style. And here is a briefer homage in the form of a single letter.

I imagine a very episodic movie, with a Greek chorus of devilish commentary. It will be interesting to see what the producers decide to do with the story.
