If I Didn't Care

By

Source: Catholic News Service

Brisk if shallow neonoir about a Hamptons househusband (Bill Sage) whose adulterous affair with a real-estate agent (Susie Misner) leads to a murder plot against his well-to-do wife (Noelle Beck), and an investigation by the dogged, philosophical local police chief (Roy Scheider). Writer-director brothers Benjamin and Orson Cummings have made an old-fashioned crime picture set in the present. Frequent rough, crude and crass language, infidelity, two off-screen shooting deaths, a very brief and nongraphic bludgeoning, a partially seen crime scene with a small amount of blood, a small amount of sexual groping and innuendo, a clothed morning-after scene and an implied sexual encounter in a car. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. Not rated by the Motion Picture Association of America.

Peter Chanel: Anyone who has worked in loneliness, with great adaptation required and with little apparent success, will find a kindred spirit in Peter Chanel. 
<p>As a young priest he revived a parish in a "bad" district by the simple method of showing great devotion to the sick. Wanting to be a missionary, he joined the Society of Mary (Marists) at 28. Obediently, he taught in the seminary for five years. Then, as superior of seven Marists, he traveled to Western Oceania where he was entrusted with an apostolic vicariate (term for a region that may later become a diocese). The bishop accompanying the missionaries left Peter and a brother on Futuna Island in the New Hebrides, promising to return in six months. He was gone five years. </p><p>Meanwhile, Pedro struggled with this new language and mastered it, making the difficult adjustment to life with whalers, traders and warring natives. Despite little apparent success and severe want, he maintained a serene and gentle spirit and endless patience and courage. A few natives had been baptized, a few more were being instructed. When the chieftain's son asked to be baptized, persecution by the chieftain reached a climax. Father Chanel was clubbed to death, his body cut to pieces. </p><p>Within two years after his death, the whole island became Catholic and has remained so. Peter Chanel is the first martyr of Oceania and its patron.</p> American Catholic Blog Here is an often overlooked piece of advice: When trying to determine what God wants us to do, we should seek Him out and remain close to Him. Makes perfect sense doesn't it? If we are concerned about following the Lord's will, having a close relationship with Him makes the process much simpler.
