The Stoning of Soraya M. and Jesus Christ


I haven’t seen this movie yet. But I definitely intend on doing so.

Fr. Barron shares his thoughts on the movie, but also takes it into a much deeper discussion of blame, scapegoating, and violence.

Jesus, like Soraya M., was a victim of scapegoating violence. And it’s a good exercise for us to examine many of the much smaller ways we unintentionally may be participating in similar activities in our daily lives.

Wow great video to contemplate and pray about our daily actions and even the way we think about others.

Everybody is guilty of exactly what Fr. Barron talks about.

Beautiful! Only in gaining the perspective of Our Lord from the Cross can we truly begin to love our brothers and sisters as Our Heavenly Father would have us do.
