Dear Sisters and Brothers,
I would like to ask about some films which can contain unpredictably violent or immoral scenes. Before I start watching a film, I usually check the Catholic bishops’ review, but I cannot do this in all cases.
What if I start to watch an action film, which seems to be harmless, (except for a few shootings) and then extremely violent scenes come (like too much blood, the type of killing shown closely in the camera) or some immoral scenes (naked women, flirting with bad intentions,etc.)
If no one informed me about the film before, and I did not read reviews from Catholic sites, these can easily happen, and I would like to know if you think I should stop watching the films at that point.
Also, if I start watching it as someone’s offer or if I’m someone’s guest, and it happens and I don’t want to hurt them, what shall I do?
I have one more question not connected to this. My native language is Hungarian, but as in a huge part of the time I use English (I’m an English teacher and have an English-speaking boyfriend as well), I feel more comfortable sometimes saying prayers in English. Do you think it can have any drawbacks or God listens the same way even if I pray in a different language apart from my native one? I feel very close to God when praying in English.
Thank you in advance for your help and your answers, God bless all of you!
