Name That Catholic!!!

The latest installment of the hottest web based game show "Name That Catholic!"

Here's a quote:

Much water has flown under the Tiber's bridges, carrying away splendor and mystery from Rome since the pontificate of Pius XII... [T]he banalities and translations which have ousted the sonorous Latin and Greek are of a supermarket quality which is quite unacceptable. Hand shaking and embarrassed smiles or smirks have replaced the older courtesies; kneeling is out, queuing is in, and the general tone is like BBC radio broadcast for tiny tots....
I won't keep you in suspense because you'll probably just Google it anyway.

The answer is, of course, the great Sir Alec Guiness who starred in such movies "Bridge on the River Kwai" and "Star Wars."

To read about his conversion click here. It's a great story. Playing GK Chesterton's Father Brown played a large role in his conversion.

  1. Guinness was a wonderful writer, articulate and with a sly, dry sense of humor. It's really nice when reading something like "My Name Escapes Me" to see that being Catholic was a part of his life.

  2. I read his bio Blessings in Disguise several years ago. Fun, easy read.
