The Chosen Series on Christ: Season 2.
« on: April 05, 2021, 01:52:33 AM »
The Chosen Series: Season 2 has just been released. For those new to the Chosen, lead actor Jonathan Roumie, who plays Jesus Christ in the series, is Catholic, and has a Devotion to the Divine Mercy, as seen from the fact that the Divine Mercy Image is often prominently displayed when he is interviewed. The director and main writer for the show, Dallas Jenkins, is Evangelical. The show consequently has an Evangelical bent, but the Episode on the Wedding of Cana nicely depicted Mother Mary's intercession during it. Mary Magdalene coming to Christ and joining His Apostles is also good. The call of Sts. Peter and Andrew, and the sons of Zebedee Sts. James and John, who were fishing, is nice. The Pharisee Nicodemus, St. Matthew, formerly a tax collector, the Samaritan woman at the Well, are also prominent characters and their coming to Christ forms its own episode. The producers of the show, which has been dubbed into many languages, have said their aim is to reach 1 billion people in all with their series depicting the life of Christ. They have about 1 million subscribers on youtube and Dallas said, with this episode, they've reached 100 million views - not necessarily 100 million viewers, since some watch multiple times - in all formats, youtube, their chosen app etc etc.

To understand God's Plan for Humanity, and how He has provided the means by which we can minimize the Coming Great Tribulation, read:

Offer your Life to Jesus and Mary: TEXT OF THE LIFE OFFERING, adapted: Dear Lord Jesus, before the Holy Trinity, Our Heavenly Mother, and the whole Heavenly Court, united with Your most Precious Blood and Your Sacrifice on Calvary, We hereby Offer our whole Lives to the Intention of Your Sacred Heart and to the Immaculate Heart of Mary. Together with our life, we place at Your disposal all Holy Masses, all our Holy Communions, all Rosaries, all acts of consecration, all our good deeds, all our sacrifices, and the suffering of our entire life for the Adoration and Supplication of the Holy Trinity, for Unity in our Holy Mother Church, for the Holy Father, Pope Francis the First; and for His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI. For His Eminence Patriarch Kirill of Moscow, His Excellency Metropolitan Hilarion, as well as His Eminence Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople, that they may re-unite their flocks with the Roman Catholic Church, and there may soon be but One Fold and One Shepherd. For all the 220+ Cardinals of the Holy Roman Church, for all 6000+ Bishops of the Universal Church that they may be true Apostles and Shepherds; and for the 400,000+ Priests, the 700,000+ Nuns, 50,000+ Monks, 100,000+ seminarians, that they may all become the Saints the Divine Will wishes them to be; for all the 1.35 Billion Members of the Church, the Millions of Catholic Catechumens and Children to be born and baptized in this Decade; we pray for good Priestly and Religious Vocations, for All Lay Apostolates, and All Souls until the end of the world. O my Jesus, please accept our life Sacrifice and our offerings and give us Your grace that we may all persevere obediently until death. Amen."

"Mother of God, Co-Redemptrix of the world, pray for us" [Promise: 1000 Souls from Purgatory]"This short prayer, this insistent prayer, every time it is said, sets free from Purgatory 1000 Souls, who reach the Eternal Joy, the Eternal Light"(!).
