Daily Mass on the Big Screen?

Clint Eastwood's Million Dollar Baby, due out in a few days, looks like a cross between Whale Rider and Rocky with a unique twist, a daily mass attendee on the big screen.

The trailer even sports a scene with a priest giving counsel rather than sexual favors, a refreshing change in this post-scandal era.

While Hollywood may be down on the Church, they just can't escape the fact that they need her sacramentality to convey faith in this visual medium.

I've always been struck by the fact that almost all churchs in the movies have traditional layouts with ornate facades, imposing stone arches, stained-glass windows, statues, candles, the whole works.

If only our modern day "worship space" architects would follow the films!
