The Passion of The Christ: A Meditation on A Film
The Passion of The Christ, produced and directed by Mr. Mel Gibson, is the single finest cinematic representation of the Nonviolent Jesus of the Gospels and His Way of Nonviolent Love of friends and enemies ever presented to the consciousness of humanity…
…The Passion of The Christ was about love-not Caesarian love, not Aristotelian love, not Platonic love, not nationalistic or ethnic love, not Hollywood love. It was about Christic love. That is, it was about the love that Jesus of Nazareth, the Christ, was ordained by Love Itself to reveal and to bestow on humanity by His words and deeds, for its temporal good and its eternal salvation. It was about the only kind of love, the only kind of power, that can conquer evil,
vanquish death, bring peace and lead one and all to an eternally graced union with God…It was about the omnipotence of Christ-like love and the omnipotent God who is love (agapé).
