China is often in the news—for finance, international business, cuisine, and more recently, the Wuhan coronavirus. But the 800-pound panda bear is the fact that China invented totalitarianism centuries before Christ, a collective reality of self-understanding that was tailor-made for the Communist revolution when it arrived.

China expert Dr. Steven Mosher has both a historical and religious context. As a historian, he knows the pattern of oppression and bondage under Communism. As a Catholic convert, he knows how critical China is to the mission of the Church.

One of the great providential blessings of living as a Catholic under the confused and confusing papacy of Pope Francis, is that there's a new hunger out there to learn the truth about the Catholic faith.

Not the liberal agenda version, not the “Jesuit tradition” version, not the LA Religious Ed Congress version, not the Feeneyite or the extremist SSPX version, and not the clap-happy, self-help therapeutic moral deism version.

I mean Catholicism, I mean the deposit of faith, what Jude 1:3 calls “the faith once delivered to the saints.”

Could you summarize the teaching of Vatican I, or the Council of Trent in a few sentences?

Do you know what was defined at the Council of Ephesus, or the First Council of Nicea?

It's like the entire Catholic Church, at almost all levels, has a case of collective amnesia when it comes to grasping what went on between the resurrection and 1962.

Then you need to dig into the deposit of faith.

Here is my review for the new Sam Mendes World War 1 drama, 1917.

The movie showcases a wise blend of newcomers and veterans. Director Sam Mendes has decades of experience in the theater and went on to direct movies like American Beauty, Skyfall, and Road to Perdition

I just read that he directed Dame Judi Dench on the stage in England at the age of 24.

The Director of Photography is Academy Award winner, Roger Deakins, whose credits include Kundun, The Shawshank Redemption, Oh Brother Where Art Thou, and the underrated movie “The Assassination of Jesse James By the Coward Robert Ford” based on a book by Deacon Ron Hanson.

1917 blends together all that experience to deliver a quiet wallop. While the subject matter is harrowing and mostly terrifying, one has to use the word beautiful to describe the visuals throughout.

More on that in a moment.

Two very well-known actors have small but critical roles as military commanders, Benedict Cumberbatch—who has one of the most magnificent speaking voices in the world—and Colin Firth.

Both of these great actors seem born to play characters from the past.

On the other hand, Mendes’ co-writer is a relative newcomer Krysty Wilson-Cairns, who has written a few short films and a TV series. There’s nothing green showing here, though. The dialogue is pithy and rings true to the context and the period.

Almost unknowns in the two lead roles:

Dean-Charles Chapman as Lance Corporal Blake and George MacKay as Lance Corporal Schofield.

These are fine young actors who are mostly unknown to American audiences. and this is a good thing because, from the opening scene, they are a blank slate.

The fact that both characters are a bit on the bland side is also a plus because they become “everyman” making it easier to vicariously follow their mission behind enemy lines and alert a British general to halt an invasion that intelligence has discovered is a German trap.

The emotional stakes have to do with the fact that Lance Corporal Blake's brother is set to be unleashed into this trap along with 1600 other British soldiers.

And this is where 1917 draws an easy comparison with “Saving Private Ryan.”

The brutal depiction of what was called The War to End All Wars coupled with the emotional impact of saving a brother makes for a very watchable movie.

But 1917 in its basic story components it's much more similar to Gallipoli, the 1981 World War One drama that proved to the world that Mel Gibson could you more as an actor than motorbike to the desert a black leather outfit and bad hair.

Gallipoli and 1917 share the same trope of gung ho soldiers maybe or maybe not being stopped before going over the top into enemy fire. No spoiler alerts, so I’ll stop right there on that.

1917 opens and closes with bookend images that show how many physical and emotional miles the characters have undergone. Again, simple and unadorned.

Everyone's talking about the single continuous shot which of course is not literally true, as was the case with the Oscar-winning Birdman, directed by Alejandro Gonzalez Innaritu.

It WAS the case with the 2002 movie Russian Ark, directed by Alexander Sokurov, and LITERALLY a 90-minute continuous steadicam shot.

With 1917, Mendes and Deakins have pulled off a two-hour magic trick by seamlessly blending the cuts along the way to give the uncanny appearance of one single camera perspective, mostly handheld and mostly traveling backward which adds to the sense of disorientation.

If you're wondering where they spent the estimated 100 million dollar budget, this is it. cameras mounted on dollies, on cranes, on steady-cam operators, and even on motorcycles, all to take the viewer on a dangerous and unpredictable adventure into hell.

Unlike with most war stories that introduce the characters’ backstories, 1917 jumps right into the mission, we don't know who these men are, we're not sure where they came from, we're only half sure of where they're going, And we certainly don't know if they'll live through it.

1917  does not have the same explicit blood and guts visuals of a “Saving Private Ryan.” The obstacles met and the dangers faced by the two leads is more Hitchcock than Spielberg.

The non-stop action includes a few stops for breathers, one of which is a beautiful scene involving a young French woman and a baby in the middle of a German-controlled village.

I'll mention one more. Special mention here goes to a haunting rendition of a 19th-century gospel ballad called “Wayfaring Stranger,” which has been covered by Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, Ed Sheeran, and Jack White.

In 1917, we are treated to an angelic acapella version by actor Jos Slovick, who, standing in the middle of the clearing in the forest in front of absolutely exhausted sitting men—many of them teenagers—sings the song like a liturgical hymn.

It's one of those memorable movie moments that provides a consoling elixir for both the characters and the audience. For a few moments, a war-torn forest becomes a cathedral.

It reminded me of the montage scene with Jose Feliciano haunting version of “California Dreamin’” smack in the middle of Quentin Tarantino's Masterpiece black comedy, “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood.”

All this to say that 1917 is going to clean up at Oscar time.

Finally, an Academy Award win that makes sense!

His official title was Honorary Chaplain to the Queen (QHC), kind of a big deal for any Anglican clergyman. Then Rt. Rev Gavin Ashenden held the position from 2008 until 2017, when he left following, inter alia, a public liturgical reading in a Glasgow cathedral from the Quran that denied the divinity of Christ. 

A good Protestant, he protested. And then he parted ways with the established church.

I am updating something I said 12 months ago, this time focusing on how to crush 2020.

If you want to make the absolute most out of the coming year, here are my top 10 tactics for total tenacity and triumph…..And I apologize for the terrible alliteration.

In no particular order:

1. Don't make a New Year's resolution. Make a plan. 

2.  As Nir Eyal says in his fine book “Indistractable,” master your internal triggers. Listen to them. My interview with him: 
https://www.patrickcoffin.media/how-to-distract-proof-your-brain/

3.  Speaking of writing things down, well everyone gets excited about to-do list, write a not-to-do list. 

4.  Cry moreThe shortest verse in the Bible is John 11:35 and describes what Jesus did when he learned that his friend Lazarus had died. “Jesus wept.”

5. Pick up your smartphone and delete your social media apps. Delete them. I dare you.

6. Small is huge. A lot of us get grandiose ideas about how this year's going to be different/way better/more powerful etc than last year, and we forget that small wins are the key to success. 

7.  Don't lie to yourself about your willpower. None of us have strong willpower. You are weak, and I am weak, and we both need constant, deliberate reliance on the grace of God to do anything well.

8.  Get thee to a Latin Mass. Go for the sumptuous silence, the reverent atmosphere, the sight of young large families, the smells and bells, the fellow Catholics actually singing, and the aerobic exercise afforded by sitting, standing, and kneeling.

9. Don't argue about the Faith. Even if you win the argument, as Bishop Sheen said, you can lose the soul. I know this sounds counterintuitive, but...

Despite teaching at prestigious universities, René Girard (1923—2015) was an outsider to the world of academe. The French philosopher and social critic began teaching literature because he needed a job. This venture set up his discovery of just how similar the various novels and classics were that he was lecturing on. He realized over time that, primarily, people want what other people want, a dynamic he called mimetic desire.

Christmas is a season, so, Merry Christmas!

In this video, I dive into some word origins and Bible verses that have to do with the brevity of life. Natura is the Latin root for nativity and nature and natural — and it has to do with things coming into being.

We often treat life like a giant game of dodgeball and we hear about someone dying we think “Oh, that’s too bad they got hit with the ball” as if we’re never going to get hit. We’ll be the last man standing forever.

The word of God teaches us otherwise. you and I will spend a brain-fracturing long amount of time in eternity in the life to come, whether in heaven or in hell, compared to the short decades we spend here in this life.

With each 52-week unit of time known as one year that we experience the subsequent 52-week units of time seem to go by faster with each passing year.

Isn’t that true?

Didn’t Christmas seem to come around every 10 years or so when you were a little kid?

So here are seven Bible verses on the brevity of life:

1. Psalms 90:10

2. Psalms 144:4

3. Job 9:25-26

4. 1 Chronicles 29:15

5. Luke 12:20

6. James 4:14

7.  Hebrews 2: 14-15

The death and resurrection of Jesus Christ have changed death from a black pit into a well-lit door.

The great playwright and Catholic convert Tennessee Williams wrote something fascinating and very practical about the brevity of life. I’ll close with this:
“In the time of your life–live!” That time is short and it doesn’t return again. It is slipping away while I write this and while you read it, the monosyllable of the clock is Loss, loss, loss, unless you devote your heart to its opposition.”

This episode debuted exactly two years ago, and I could think of no better show this year to honor my all-time favorite movie, Frank Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life (1947) through the eyes of two women with close ties to its creation.

If Mr. Capra didn’t write it, why do I call it “Frank Capra’s It’s a Wonderful Life? It’s because that’s how the movie was marketed, which helps explain why the film got only a so-so reception when it was first released. Most of Mr. Capra’s pre-World War II movies were so sweet-hearted that they later earned the moniker “Capracorn,” not meant as a compliment.

It’s a Wonderful Life is one of the most critically acclaimed films ever made. Nominated for five Academy Awards including Best Picture, recognized by the American Film Institute as one of the 100 best American films ever made, and placed number 11 on its initial 1998 greatest movie list, it also ranked number one on its list of the most inspirational American films of all time.

Think about that. In light of the fact that hundreds of thousands of movies have been made, this is a jaw-dropping achievement.

By the end of the Second World War, though, the mood of the movie-going public had shifted, as I wrote about the making of the movie in National Review a few years ago HERE.

The next day after it was published, an appreciative email from a woman named Mary Owen arrived in my inbox. Turns out, Mary is the daughter of actress Donna Reed, who played Mary Bailey, the wife of James Stewart’s George Bailey.

I thanked her for the lovely email and we had a few back-and-forths. After my podcast was up on two feet and spreading around the world (110 countries and counting), I thought it would be fun to have her on the show to talk about her mother’s role in this now-international favorite Christmas movie and to learn some back story to her mother’s career and her commitment to writing back to the G.I’s who wrote to her from the trenches and the gun turrets of World War II.

The interview segues nicely into the next one, a rich conversation with actress Karolyn Grimes who played Zuzu, one of the four Bailey kids. Remember Zuzu’s petals? This was a real treat for me who loves the movie so well, and I know it will be for you as well.

I learned, among other things, how much Mrs. Grimes suffered as a teen when her mother died and then the next year her father was killed and she became a ward of the state—then “rescued” by an aunt and uncle in Missouri, which was an unhappy home situation. Karolyn also played Debbie, the daughter of David Niven and Loretta Young in another Christmas favorite, The Bishop’s Wife.

For those of us who can’t gobble up enough trivia and true stories about It’s a Wonderful Life, Mrs. Grimes is a treasure trove of first-hand memories and insights!

In this Christmas video, I cite a writer writing about Christmas.

 Without Googling, can you guess who wrote it?

The mystery writer starts according to John’s Gospel:

“And the Word was made flesh, and came to dwell among us; and we had sight of His glory, glory such as belongs to the Father’s only-begotten Son, full of grace and truth.” – John 1:14

I’ll give you a major hint: the writer is a Christian.

Leave your guess in the comment box below.

A merry and blessed and peaceful Christmas to you and your family!

In this video, I summarize the story so far of the sudden postponement of the Bishop Fulton Sheen beatification, which had been slated for December 21, 2019.

I also provide some important context for the lead up to the "Sheen Cause Pause," and give you the lowdown on WHY it was halted, as well as give a short introduction to the great man himself.

In his day Bishop Sheen was a household name.

Every aspect of his very public life has undergone extraordinary scrutiny already. The miraculous raising of the dead of young James Fulton Engstrom is a certified bona fide miracle (see my interview with his mother Bonnie in the link below), and Pope Francis himself authorized Bishop Sheen as worthy of beatification.

But...the Diocese of Rochester confirmed last Thursday that it had requested a delay of the beatification of Archbishop Fulton Sheen, which had been scheduled for Dec. 21 until it was postponed indefinitely earlier this week.

The Diocese of Peoria says the Rochester Diocese has left out key facts as to WHY.

This is what this video addresses.

The bottomline is, Fulton J Sheen is clean. The screeching halt to his Cause, was orchestrated by Bishop Salvatore Matano of Rochester (Rome sources say he was abetted by Cardinals Cupich of Chicago and Dolan of New York—no surprise there). It's a sham.

Does Cardinal Dolan's silence in particular have something, maybe, possibly something to do with the fact that he lost in four different legal Appeals in a row—costing the faithful of New York hundreds of thousands of dollars for high-priced attorneys to keep Bishop Sheen’s body in Saint Pat’s Cathedral?

Will no US bishops stand up in defense of their brother bishop and sainthood candidate?

In the end, Catholics should be glad the Cause was halted. I explain why in this video.

Venerable Fulton J Sheen, Ora Pro Nobis.

Is there a more urgent, vital question than what happens to you after you die? Despite misunderstandings about what purgatory or limbo are, the Catholic Church, following Scripture and Tradition, teaches with highest authority that there are only two eternal destinies: heaven and hell.

If you read the Gospels and pay attention to what Jesus says about hell, you’ll be surprised how often and how seriously He warns us about it. But are these merely “warnings”? Is Jesus bluffing to teach a lesson? Could hell, in fact, be empty?
