Children of men

John and I recently saw the movie "Children of Men," which is powerful and disturbing. I've had a hard time finding intelligent commentary on it, but it turns out Boston's Cardinal Sean O'Malley sumed it up on his blog:

The Church is a bastion of defense against the culture of death. In terms of the film Children of Men we are “the human project” — the alternative is the culture of death. As the populations of the Western world age, we will see that the generation of parents that aborted their own children, will be euthanized by the children who survived.

Thanks to Thomas at Ad Jesu per Mariam

  1. There's something horribly, sadly fitting with that comment. But oh how wrong it is to be at such a point.
