Q:  You do not usually go to movies, but you did last week. What did you see?

A:  Concussion.

I had a pass. One of the questions I carry with me when I enter a cinema is, “How will the Catholic Church be portrayed in this film?” The scene at mass shows an arrangement of ministers that would never take place (priest standing at the altar with arms extended while the choir sings the gospel acclamation). But in the end, I was amazed that the Catholic Church came out looking so positive. The doctor is a sincere man of faith, and his faith clearly drives the integrity of his work. It’s the only film I’ve seen where science and faith go hand in hand, and where coroners, Catholics, and even Congress come out looking better than the NFL.
