Comming this Weekend…FIREPROOF!
Catholic Endorsements for FIREPROOF
Dozens of key Catholic leaders are endorsing FIREPROOF and encouraging the Catholic faithful to see it on opening weekend. Opening weekend for FIREPROOF (September 26-28) will determine how long it will play in the theaters where it’s opening … and how many additional theaters it might come to.
“FIREPROOF follows the difficulties of a married couple who have decided to divorce. The movie is infused with evangelical Christianity’s sense of marriage as a covenant, and Catholics can share that and complete it with our understanding of marriage as a sacrament. I don’t see many movies, but this was one I watched and was moved by.”
~Cardinal Francis George, Archdiocese of Chicago
“FIREPROOF is a remarkable film that can be helpful to those preparing for marriage, those in the first years of marriage, and those who are struggling within a marriage. It is artistically well done, it provides remarkable wisdom, and it truly touches the heart. With the divorce rate even among Catholics as high as it is and the obvious struggles that so many people continue to experience within marriage, this is a film that addresses the challenges of life realistically, persuasively, and with humor. I invite you to see it when it opens.”
~Archbishop Alfred Hughes, Archdiocese of New Orleans”
FIREPROOF is an excellent film that makes marriage commitment real and attainable with Christ’s grace.”
~ Archbishop Joseph E. Kurtz, Archdiocese of Louisville
“FIREPROOF dramatically affirms that a marriage works best when the husband, the wife and God work together for its success.”
~Carl Anderson, Supreme Knight, The Knights of Columbus
My Comments: Our diocese is scheduled to see Fireproof this coming Saturday and I’m looking forward to seeing it. It is being promoted here by the Office of Family Life.
