    We watched It's A Wonderful Life today, I'm hoping and praying that it has a positive effect on my mother and brother; but it also reminds and should remind all of us, that even though we live in a time where all the Potters of the world (both the Mr. Potters and the Harry Potters;)) are making great strides to turn this planet into Pottersville, we still have a lot to be grateful for. Our Lord has given us many blessings and many graces, and we should be grateful for that.

    If nothing else, we still have Jesus, Mary and Joseph.

    Thank you for this RosaryWeilder, It’s A Wonderful Life is one of my favorite films. I enjoy it so much I bought this little container years ago, it lives on my fireplace year round with seasonal floral arrangements. It is a constant reminder that each life has a purpose, and we truly do need to count our blessings. I hope that this film has touched your mother and brother.

    Thank you RW. You say it so well. The DS is trying to turn the whole world into Pottersville.
    I just got done watching Going My Way. I know its Schmaltz-y but it is so lovely. So much the way I remember our Catholic world. I had tears in my eyes for what we have lost.

    Zuzu is an interesting name, apparently it's Czech for Lily.

    Yeah, last fall we started watching the Twilight Zone, it's fascinating how different things were back then; even though the Potters and the like were already at work and seeds were sown; there was a lot more art and culture back then.

    I'm glad "It's a Wonderful Life" was on during Thanksgiving 1991, which I spent all alone in a little apartment in Omaha, Nebraska. The day was gloomy and rainy. With the help of commercial breaks, "the movie" went on at least three, maybe four, hours, during which I decorated the apartment for Christmas.

    Haven't seen the movie since, but it's part of a bittersweet memory.

    I've been meaning to watch that for a long time. Reading this made me finally purchase it, along with The Bells of St. Mary's, which I've seen and loved. Do you know of any other movies that feature more innocent times in the Catholic Church and society that you'd recommend?

    I saw an explanation of the name Zu Zu on a movie station. It came from Zu Zu ginger snaps. In fact I think I remember Jimmy Stewart calling his daughter-his little ginger snap in the movie. Now if only I could figure the Hot Dog part where George Bailey goes into a store and hits something and yells Hot Dog!

    The Sound of Music, excepting the rise of the Nazis (which doesn't predominate the film).
