Eurotrip

By

Source: Catholic News Service

Sleazy teen comedy about a high school senior (Scott Mechlowicz), who travels to Europe with three classmates to track down his cyber-pen pal with whom he has severed ties, thinking it was a guy coming on to him, only to discover that she is, in fact, a gorgeous German girl (Jessica Boehrs). If you are scratching your head, don't worry; the premise is little more than an excuse by director Jeff Schaffer to get the oversexed kids across the pond, where they embark on a hedonistic tour of European capitals, including a sacrilegious stopover at the Vatican. Several raunchy sexual encounters, including a sacrilegious sequence, recurring full and partial nudity, drug content, as well as much crude language and humor. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is O -- morally offensive. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is R -- restricted.

Thomas Becket: A strong man who wavered for a moment, but then learned one cannot come to terms with evil and so became a strong churchman, a martyr and a saint—that was Thomas Becket, archbishop of Canterbury, murdered in his cathedral on December 29, 1170. 
<p>His career had been a stormy one. While archdeacon of Canterbury, he was made chancellor of England at the age of 36 by his friend King Henry II. When Henry felt it advantageous to make his chancellor the archbishop of Canterbury, Thomas gave him fair warning: he might not accept all of Henry’s intrusions into Church affairs. Nevertheless, he was made archbishop (1162), resigned his chancellorship and reformed his whole way of life! </p><p>Troubles began. Henry insisted upon usurping Church rights. At one time, supposing some conciliatory action possible, Thomas came close to compromise. He momentarily approved the Constitutions of Clarendon, which would have denied the clergy the right of trial by a Church court and prevented them from making direct appeal to Rome. But Thomas rejected the Constitutions, fled to France for safety and remained in exile for seven years. When he returned to England, he suspected it would mean certain death. Because Thomas refused to remit censures he had placed upon bishops favored by the king, Henry cried out in a rage, “Will no one rid me of this troublesome priest!” Four knights, taking his words as his wish, slew Thomas in the Canterbury cathedral. </p><p>Thomas Becket remains a hero-saint down to our own times.</p> American Catholic Blog Oh Jesus, present in the Blessed Sacrament, I rejoice to know you on a deeper level. Show me where my stubborn will gets in your way. Let me be a pure channel through which your grace can flow to others.
