On Saturday, March 8, the Maronite Servants of Christ the Light took the MYO of Our Lady of Purgatory parish to watch the newly released movie, “Son of God”. The movie depicts the life, passion, death and resurrection of Our Lord Jesus Christ. The members of the MYO were quite moved, particularly during the scenes portraying Our Lord’s passion and crucifixion.
Afterwards, the sisters invited the group to the Mother of Light Convent for a pizza supper and a sharing on the movie. Each teen was touched by different parts of the movie. One was struck by Mary’s example throughout the passion of Jesus, particularly her surrender to the will of God, and Peter’s bitter tears upon his denial of Jesus moved another. All the teens considered the movie a timely reminder of Jesus’ ultimate sacrifice for us, particularly during this holy season of Great Lent, as we meditate on the suffering of Jesus and the sorrow of Our Lady.
