"Then the word of the Lord came unto me, saying, Before I formed thee in the belly I knew thee; and before thou camest  forth out of the womb I sanctified thee, and I ordained thee a prophet unto the nations.  Then said I, Ah Lord God! behold I cannot speak: for I am a child." 

 -Jeremiah 1:7

Branded As A Traitor

Jeremiah tells the story of the prophet who abandons his family and the woman he loves, in order to relay God's message in Jerusalem.  Although he is persecuted and branded as a traitor for warning others of the destruction of the Holy City, he continues fearlessly with his mission.  When his prophecy is fulfilled, he experiences first-hand Jerusalem's destruction by the Babylonians.

Our Comments:

This movie shows all the rejection, persecution, and suffering that the world, the flesh, and the Devil use to attempt to defeat the person who follows God.  It is such a powerful movie, with such an important message (and Jeremiah is such a great example of a man of God) that  _________________________________

we have decided to show it once a year in our monastery for the spiritual benefit of all of our monks.  This is not a "fun" movie, and I do not think we could bear to watch it more than that.  A movie that makes you think about the strength of your commitment to the Lord.
