Transcript of Christmas Carol Vs. The Five People You Meet in Heaven
This encyclical is offering people to participate in a General Confession.
During a general confession, a priest speaks not only for the penitents but himself as well. Programs What programs, locally and nationally, are already in place to try to address the named problem or issue? Personal Story St. Augustine of Hippo Story Cont. Ali's Perspective Finale So, why the maze? Trailer Synopsis A Christmas Carol A Christmas Carol Trailer Synopsis Five People you Meet in Heaven Eddie was a maintenance worker at the Ruby Pier amusement park and a war vet of World War II. On his 83rd birthday, he died trying to save a young, five year old girl, who was sitting under a falling ride. He soon wakes up to find that he is in heaven. As the movie goes on, he has to encounter five people who all will help him to understand the meaning of his life. Ebenezer Scrooge is a miserable old businessman in the mid 1800's England. One Christmas Eve, he was visited by his dead partner Marley, who appeared to him as a ghost. Marley forewarned Scrooge that he will be visited by three spirits; each will attempt to show Scrooge of his wrong ways. Prayer Repentance is an important value to have, because the ability to stand tall, recognize our wrong actions, and apologize for them demonstrates strength of heart and character. Doing so also takes quite a spiritual and emotional load off our hearts, giving us some peace of mind. Holly's Perspective Problem Common Theme: Reflection Looking back, accepting and learning from the past, improving the future Common Issue: Repentance Owning up for your actions, atoning for your bad choices Finally, he realized he was acting wrongly, saying to his friend, "Unlearned people are taking Heaven by force, while we, with all our knowledge, are so cowardly that we keep rolling around in the mud of our sins." He ran into a garden and cried to God, asking how much longer he'd have to endure being sinful. For seventeen years, he led a life very poor in morals, though his mother, St. Monica, was very devoutly Catholic. She prayed for him ceaselessly, hoping that he would one day see the glory of God and change his ways. Augustine went on to become a priest and bishop, a Catholic writer, and one of the greatest saints who ever lived. Theresa's Perspective Plan of Action No single solution exists for this problem. However, there are three steps YOU can take to help yourself. 1. Reflect on your Choices 2. Praise your Good Decisions 3. Repent for your Bad Decisions In both films, the main characters were LOST. Eddie was lost about his purpose. Ebenezer was lost in his priorities and in his treatment of others. In the end and with a little help, both FOUND THEIR WAY The Truth Shall Set You Free Ali Parson, Holly Matthews, Theresa Doan Story Cont. Augustine heard a child sing, "Take up and read!" He picked up the Bible and read the first passage his eyes found, a letter of St. Paul about putting away impurity and living as Jesus did. In 387, Augustine was baptized, and Monica passed later that year. A local program in place to address our problem would be confession in local Churches. What nonprofits exist to help people experiencing the named problem? What do these organizations do to offer assistance?
