My answer on another thread about recent news and the Church today was:
I’ve got to tell you at my Lord’s urging I have stepped away from the news, and entertainment and tv medium.
I find I have more time for prayer, study, rosary, adoration. I’m happier not knowing every evil and trouble in the world. Enough filters through friends, family, co-workers I know generally what is happening in the world, but I’ve just taken a step back from all of that. This is the direction I am currently in because of my preparation for Easter Vigil.
I work in a profession where I have to know horrible things that happen to people and innocent victims – evil stuff. So, I can pray about that, but to also know about all the evil and stuff going on in the world is more than I want to know. ANDDDDDDDDDDDDD…
I just got to the point if I heard “Ohhhhhhhhhh myyyyyyyyyyy Gooooooooodddddddddd!” one more time on news or TV I was going to lose it. Now I stick to EWTN and good music.
It got me to thinking if any other posters have stopped watching so much TV’s and going to movies – the last movie I saw was “Forgetting Sarah Marshall”. A Catholilc woman took me saying it was a chick flick a romantic comedy. I was sick in the movie it was so vile, and she was offended I didn’t like the movie. No more movies for this girl unless I check the USCCB site now. And that Catholicm woman never picks my movies now – she and I became a “share lunch buddies” only!
So what do you think?
