The passion of Christ

Mel Gibson's film, "The Passion of the Christ", set a new record during its opening weekend as Croatia's most-watched movie. I am happy that people are once again inspired by Jesus, and that Mel made this film because of my esteem for his work. It is good that people take positive examples and high ideals, so what can be higher than ideal of Christ’s love, patience and compassion. This is far better than ideals like power, money or sexuality that are widely promoted in all medias today.

It is interesting that Christ’s message could seem to be to quiet and unattractive for today’s world, but surprisingly it is strong enough to attract people again and again. For me this is a good sign: people are still able to distinguish between the right and wrong, and feels need for deeper peace, happiness and sense of life. So the popularity of Christ and his message today isn’t so big surprise after all: they give a key to answer our deeper questions and needs.
