Hey! Long time no posts!

Well, deacon schooling has been keeping me busy, among other things. My fellow seminarians and I hit a new milestone a few weeks ago as we were installed as acolytes by our archdiocese’s coadjutor archbishop, Bernard Hebda. (That’s the event pictured on the right, with me in my alb and my lovely lady.) This is our last big milestone before ordination in 2016!

I’ll also confess that I’m hard at work on an exciting project, one that I won’t come right out and announce, but I’ll say this: It’s getting ve-ery hard for me to look at my own website right now — a problem likely to persist for several weeks yet. More to come!

Reel Faith news! This week David DiCerto and I kicked off our annual holiday mini-season, the first of four episodes to air between now and Christmas.

This episode airs tonight at 8pm Eastern, and will keep airing for two weeks over the Thanksgiving holiday, so there’s plenty of chance to catch it. And it’s a doozy: Mockingjay: Part 1, Big Hero 6 and Interstellar!

When and where can you catch “Reel Faith”? Glad you asked!

New 60 second reviews! Enjoy!

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 1 (SDG)

Katniss Everdeen may be the Mockingjay now, but Jennifer Lawrence is still the girl on fire. How does the first half of the last book hold up? Here’s my take.

Big Hero 6 (SDG)

It’s a Marvel movie! It’s a Disney cartoon! It’s … a Marney movie! It’s set in San Fransokyo! Wait, what?

St. Vincent (DD)

Hey, did you catch Bill Murray’s comments about the Latin Mass? His character in St. Vincent may not be a saint, but the film is the most positive Hollywood depiction of Catholicism in a non-horror movie in years.

Gone Girl (DD)

A friend tells me this is one of his top 10 films of the year, but if I saw it it would be one of my bottom 10. I can’t vouch for that, but here’s David’s take.
