Being courageous as men, husbands, fathers and Christians

Movie explores real life answers to real life problems

Five men have endured personal hardship and suffering. Four of them are police officers. They are called to be courageous in manning up to be better men, husbands, fathers and Christians. The five men make a formal and solemn resolution before their wives and children and before their church pastor and their God.  They resolve to take ownership of their vocation as Christian men by being faithful to their families and their God. As the spiritual leader in the home they resolve to love and protect their families, and teach them the Word of God. They resolve to be faithful and self sacrificing towards their wives, train their families to respect authority, and bring their children to love God. They commit to pray for and help others, confront evil, pursue justice, love mercy and seek reconciliation with the strength God provides.

Two of the men are severely tested in their fidelity to this resolution. What does one of the policemen do when he discovers that a fellow officer has betrayed the resolution by consuming street drugs? What does another man do when he is promised a management position but has to lie in order to get the position? How does their goodwill resolution impact upon these real life situations?

The answer is revealed in the movie Courageous to be shown in St. Anthony’s Catholic Church hall, 7237 Morrow Rd., Agassiz, on Thurs. Mar. 22, from 7 p.m.  to 9 p.m. Everyone is invited, particularly men. Admission will be by donation to help cover the cost of the licence and publicity material. The movie involves police drama: house raids, car and foot racing, shoot-outs, but most of all it demonstrates how courageous men can be when they are under pressure.
