‘Special Responsibility’


I was disappointed that the movie review in CNY’s Jan. 3 issue did not focus on the most uplifting, profound, artistic and full of imagination movie produced in the year 2018: “Mary Poppins Returns” by director Rob Marshall. It is hard to go to movies together as a family because basic values are non-existent, the language used is vulgar, and the humor is crass.

A Catholic newspaper like CNY has a special responsibility to support movies like this one if we are to follow what St. Pope John Paul II indicated in his Letter to the Artists. Pope Francis also encourages the media and the laity to empower beauty as a way to save the world.
