‘Full of Grace’ ~
CFDb Movie Review
Follows Mary of Nazareth in her last earthly days as she helps the fractious early Church regain their original encounter with The Lord.
Set in Jerusalem, 10 years after the passion of her son, Mary lives out her final earthly days and contemplates the incredible mystery of her life. Accompanied by her young maidservant Zara, she quietly awaits the return of the “Rock”, the one her Son placed as responsible for the Christian people — Peter.
Arriving to Mary’s home after 10 long years of traveling, preaching and fleeing from death, Peter feels the overwhelming responsibility and helplessness in front of the great task he must undertake. Spending days with Mary and recounting what happened in both their lives after meeting Christ, Peter slowly discovers that he is not leading the Church, but following what Jesus had started.
How interesting to see Mary portrayed after the resurrection. Here were some highlights:
- Mary’s daily routine spending time with God.
- Focusing daily on what Jesus did for us – loved what Mary said about it.
- The struggles they faced are the same struggles we face today.
What this movie brought out to me is the importance of spending time with God every day, in His Word and in prayer. If you don’t have a special place where you spend time with God, maybe it’s time to change that.
This film will be released January 5, 2016, but you can pre-order today.
