Storyline

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 <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Sister Rose is a good moral example, interviewed scholars don't accurately represent Catholic Orthodoxy
23 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Clearly, Sister Rose is a fine example of a woman dedicated to ministering the mercy of Jesus Christ. The pages of Holy Scripture, particularly the New Testament, and indeed much of Church History for the past 2000 years remind all Christ's followers of this ideal.

The fact is that the Jews did not "kill" Jesus Christ, but the sins of every human being in the history of time did. This is the Christian message in its most sublime form and no amount of cinematic rhetorical spin can change this.

Sister Rose's personal appearances and words really shine in this film, with the exception of a few inaccurate comments about the veracity of St. John's Gospel (near the end of the movie),. However, the "scholars" interviewed do little more than rehash warmed over Biblical higher-criticism. This subtly denigrate the authenticity of the four canonical Gospels and consequently is incongruous with Catholic Orthodoxy.

Catholics who are faithful to the Magisterium and to Orthodoxy will either want to avoid this movie -OR- watch and listen with _very_ critical eyes and ears. One only needs to simply read the Gospel accounts to understand Christ's love for ALL of humanity.
