                                       From “The Original Image of Divine Mercy”
A still from a 2015 documentary shows the original image of Divine Mercy, now housed in Lithuania. The film is showing at Oregon parishes this fall.

Versions of the Divine Mercy image are prominent in many parishes — a kindly Christ with rays light emerging from his heart. But few Catholics know that there is an original image, somewhat different from what we see on parish easels.

Nine Lives
NEW YORK (CNS) — It must have been a slow day in Hollywood when the proposal for the vapid comedy "Nine Lives" (EuropaCorp) got the green light.

Sausage Party

NEW YORK (CNS) — If everyone in the world would just abandon belief in God, peace would prevail and life would be one long, joyous, pansexual, narcotics-fueled love-in.

That's the moronic message of "Sausage Party" (Columbia), a disgusting spitball of an animated comedy from directors Conrad Vernon and Greg Tiernan.

Florence Foster Jenkins
NEW YORK (CNS) — Like the World War II-era New York socialite it profiles, "Florence Foster Jenkins" (Paramount), a charmingly eccentric blend of comedy and drama, has its heart in the right place.

Ben Hur

NEW YORK (CNS) — Few films come to the screen with the kind of storied pedigree that lies behind "Ben-Hur" (Paramount). Subtitled "A Tale of the Christ," Civil War Gen. Lew Wallace's best-selling 1880 novel, which had previously been made into a wildly successful stage play, first reached audiences of the newfangled cinema way back in 1907. Since that adaptation was completely unauthorized, however, a lawsuit resulted that still stands as a landmark in the development of copyright protection.

Parish guide on ecology
ARLINGTON, Va. (CNS) — In his encyclical "Laudato Si', on Care for Our Common Home," Pope Francis does not mince words: "Living our vocation to be protectors of God's handiwork is essential to a life of virtue; it is not an optional or a secondary aspect of our Christian experience."

Ice Age: Collision Course

NEW YORK (CNS) — Weakly constructed and inappropriate, in some respects, for its target audience, "Ice Age: Collision Course" (Fox) has little to recommend it.

This fifth installment of the animated franchise for children that dates back to 2002 also is tainted by a vaguely anti-religious undertone that seems to exalt science at the expense of faith.

Jason Bourne

NEW YORK (CNS) — Nearly all of the characters in "Jason Bourne" (Universal) are under surveillance, being hacked, or in the gun sight of a government assassin.

Director Paul Greengrass, who co-scripted with Christopher Rouse, bookends the story with extended car and motorcycle chases, with the result that vehicle casualties considerably outnumber the body count from weapons.
