Monday Fun - not quite

Very sorry that there is no Monday Fun video today. For some reason I can't upload videos. Hope that this will be sorted soon.

If you want to have a look at something a bit hairy, take a look at this .

Now for something a bit more off beat. I caught a news article on Radio 4 this morning about the show to see in France this spring. It's called The Satin Slipper (Le Soulier de Satin). I think the reporter said it lasted eleven hours - that's right eleven hours.

The play was written by a conservative French Catholic writer, Paul Claudel. A New York Times review described the film version as a "profoundly religious movie that exalts self-sacrifice redemption and eternal life."

I know I might well be grasping at straws, but I think we are entitled to ask why this kind of production is so popular in probably the most secular nation in Europe, if not the world? Is it a sign of spiritual hunger in that most anti-religious of European nations?

If you want to go to Paris to take a look, you can find details here

The Satin Sliiper sounds intresting.

I think most, if not all, people, been made in God's image (pure love), are seeking love in their soul. Though of course sometimes Satan can create the illusion of love, in one of his many masks.

Ultimatly each soul will have to make a choice someday, who do they choose to love.

May Jesus spread his peaace and love to the whole world. Amen.
