Celebrates Sister Rose Thering, for 67 years a Dominican nun. Her passion is anti-Semitism. Archival footage looks at her growing up in Wisconsin and taking the veil in her teens. Interviews with scholars and common people capture the extent to which "Christ killers" was a standard Catholic description of Jews. Sister Rose's research at Saint Louis University in the 1950s into the presentation of Jews within Catholic educational materials leads to the publication of "Nostra Aetate," a document released in 1965 by the Second Vatican Council. Since that time, she's dedicated herself to eradicating anti-Semitism. The film ends with a critique of Mel Gibson's "Passion of the Christ." Written by <>

Well worth your time.

"Sister Rose's Passion" was nominated for the Best Documentary Short in 2005--losing out to "Mighty Times: The Children's March". It's a very well made film about a Catholic nun, Sister Rose, who has devoted her life to fighting antisemitism within the Church. This film follows her progression of her faith through graduate school to Vatican Two to the present day--and her passion to fight any vestiges of the hatred of Jews--not just within Catholicism but in the United States. And, despite Rose's advanced age and ill health, her work in this area continues. Although not mentioned in the film, since it came out in 2004, Rose passed away in 2006 and the world is a better place because of her. In addition to talking about the progression of her beliefs and work, the movie "The Passion of the Christ" was briefly discussed and how it might serve to promote antisemitism. Overall, a very touching film about a remarkable lady.

By the way, I am curious about one thing. In the film, it basically says that the Catholic Church has long taught that the Jews bear the responsibility for killing Jesus. While I am sure many Protestant churches also have taught that over the years, thank God I have never heard this in my church experience in the Lutheran, Baptist or other Protestant churches I have attended. This is a very good thing, though I wonder if there are many churches in this country that still do teach this sick doctrine.
