    Second Topic - Do I Have to Go? 101 questions about the Mass, the Eucharist, and your spiritual life

    From playing video games to sleeping-in, teens can think of countless things they would rather do than go to Mass on Sunday morning. That is, unless they knew what they were missing. Matt Pinto explains the meaning and the mystery of Mass in such a way that teens will be asking, Why wouldn't I go? With wit, clarity, and common sense, Matthew answers the tough questions teens have about the Mass; from the rituals contained in the liturgy, to the doctrines of the Eucharist and the Priesthood. When teens understand that the Mass is literally the meeting place between heaven and earth there is nothing in the world that can keep them from it.

    Third Topic - Get Low

    For years, townsfolk have been terrified of the backwoods recluse known as Felix Bush. People say he's done all manner of unspeakable things -- that he's killed in cold blood; that he's in league with the Devil; that he has strange powers -- and they avoid him like the plague. Then, one day, Felix rides to town with a shotgun and a wad of cash, saying he wants to buy a funeral. It's not your usual funeral for the dead Felix wants. On the contrary, he wants a 'living funeral,' in which anyone who ever had heard a story about him will come to tell it, while he takes it all in. But on the big day, Felix is in no mood to listen to other people spinning made-up anecdotes about him. This time, he's the one who is going to do the telling about why he has been hiding out in the woods. The film is Get Low. Last week we talked to the star of the film, Robert Duval, now we get the review from Steven Greydanus.
