Fr. Robert Barron On The End Of The World

Fr. Barron is back with his review of the movie 2012. Father brings out and discusses many interesting points made in this movie, but spends some time illuminating the anti~Catholic sentiments portayed. He says that while the movie is based on Biblical facts, it is a twisted version of the Biblical passages that talk about the end of the world. He also discusses how the movie aggressively eliminates God; anyone seen praying is destroyed or eliminated in some way.
As always, you can rely on Fr. Barron's honest and straightforward commentary.

Hi Karinann,
I found your blog through Sanctus Christopher. You've done a nice job here! The 2012 thing really gets to me, mainly because Jesus told us that no one, not even He, knows when the world will end. Anyway, I havent seen the movie, so this clip was interesting to me. I didnt realize the movie as a whole was anti-Catholic. thanks for the post!
God Bless!

Michael,
Thanks and welcome! I haven't seen the movie either, but the whole thing annoys me for the same reasons as yours- if Jesus doesn't know, who do the Mayans or anyone else for that matter, think they are?
Hope you enjoy your visits to my blog.
God Bless!

Closing Prayer

Psalm 45: Canticle of Love to the King

My heart overflows with a good theme;
I address my verses to the King;
My tongue is the pen of a ready writer.
You are fairer than the sons of men;
Grace is poured upon Your lips;
Therefore God has blessed You forever.

Gird Your sword on Your thigh, O Mighty One,
In Your splendor and Your majesty!
And in Your majesty ride on victoriously,
For the cause of truth and meekness and righteousness;
Let Your right hand teach You awesome things.
Your arrows are sharp;
The peoples fall under You;
Your arrows are in the heart of the King’s enemies.

Your throne, O God, is forever and ever;
A scepter of uprightness is the scepter of Your kingdom.
You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness;
Therefore God, Your God, has anointed You
With the oil of joy above Your fellows.
All Your garments are fragrant with myrrh and aloes and cassia;
Out of ivory palaces stringed instruments have made You glad.
Kings’ daughters are among Your noble ladies;
At Your right hand stands the queen in gold from Ophir.
