Caviezel at Notre Dame

Jim Caviezel, of The Passion fame, spoke at the Grotto of the University of Notre Dame to a crowd of students on Thursday along with joining in a Rosary.

Some of the highlights:

  • "God used me as his instrument," he said. "Anything good about the movie came from the fasting, the deep prayer and the daily Mass."
  • "I came here to Notre Dame to tell you students to have the courage to step into this pagan world and shamelessly express your faith in public," he said. "We are in a more dangerous war now than ever before ... our world is entrenched in sin."
  • Caviezel spoke about controversial topics including abortion. While he said he wasn't here to antagonize pro-choice Catholics, he asked, "Do you think Our Lady is pro-choice?"
  • "You were not sent here simply to study or play ball, but to understand that you are a son or daughter of Notre Dame," he said. "This University is about saving your mortal soul."
  • He pleaded with students not to "lose sight of Our Lady while cramming for tests, playing ball and drinking Guinness."

The rest of the article can be found here. BTW: He will also be at the USC/Notre Dame football game.

For my part, I don't know how you could truly drink Guinness without thinking of Our Blessed Mother. MMM...Guinnessy Goodness.
