Banger Sisters, The

By

Source: Catholic News Service

Disagreeable comedy in which two legendary rock 'n' roll groupies from the 1960s, one a down-and-out middle-aged bartender (Goldie Hawn) and the other an uptight socialite ashamed of her past (Susan Sarandon), reconnect after decades, trying to understand each other's now-differing lifestyles. With hackneyed characterizations, writer-director Bob Dolman's clunky, forced narrative is predictable from the start, and the film's suggestion that promiscuity is liberating is more than a bit off-putting. Some sexual encounters and several sexual references, fleeting frontal nudity, a benign depiction of promiscuity, brief drug content and some rough language and profanity. The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops classification is A-IV -- adults, with reservations. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.

Clement: 
		<p>Clement of Rome was the third successor of St. Peter, reigning as pope during the last decade of the first century. He’s known as one of the Church’s five “Apostolic Fathers,” those who provided a direct link between the Apostles and later generations of Church Fathers. </p>
		<p>His <em>First Epistle to the Corinthians </em>was preserved and widely read in the early Church. This letter from the bishop of Rome to the Church in Corinth concerns a split that alienated a large number of the laity from the clergy. Deploring the unauthorized and unjustifiable division in the Corinthian community, Clement urged charity to heal the rift. <br /></p>
American Catholic Blog All Catholics would do well to keep in mind the power of the rosary and the message of Fatima. The rosary is not merely a devotional aid; it is a weapon of conversion, protection, and love. The rosary was given to us for such a time as this—never has this weapon been more needed than it is today.
