Life Through Prayer


This Sunday was spent watching other people at prayer in the shape of Ulrich Seidl’s powerful film, “Jesus, You Know”.

Jesus, You Know

The film is largely framed in the personal prayer time of individual Austrian Catholics filmed in their local churches before the altar. It is an uncomfortable watch as the viewer seems to be intruding on a very private conversation where sin and hopes and disappointments are voiced in raw disclosures meant only for God. It is a picture of deep faith and the hardship of the devout life.
