Remembering the reason for this season

During this Holy Week season I wanted to show this clip from the movie The Robe (1953) starring the late Richard Burton and Jean Simmons. This the ending scene where Burton’s character Marcellus faces the wicked Emperor of Rome, Caligula and warns that a kingdom of Christ will come and end all evil, tyranny and injustice once and for all. Of course, the thug for emperor does not like this message and eventually sends the “Christian” soldier Marcellus and his fiance to death. Talk about standing up and dying for a noble cause. I wish all a happy and meaningful happy Holy Week.
