Movie recommendation: Green Book

Green Book is a 2018 American comedy-drama film based on a true life story. The setting is the Deep South in the 1960’s; the story follows a tour with Dr. Don Shirley, a black man, a world class pianist, who needs a driver – protector during the trip. Tony Lip, a tough-talking Italian bouncer from the Bronx is recruited. Maybe we have forgotten the degree of segregation experienced at that time, and maybe some of us never knew. The film shows the truth of the time, and shares a witty warmth and humour as the two men develop a man-man friendship, a relationship that persisted long after the tour. (The Green Book was a booklet with information of places where black travellers can expect to receive hospitality when they travel).

On January 30th the two journeying associates in Summerside, Dorothy and Jeannette, made their 1st commitment in the presence of a well-attended monthly meeting of associates and sisters. We gathered in the chapel for the celebration, facilitated by associates Louise and Aldona. They introduced the service by referring to the Sisters of the Congregation ministering in El Paso and prayed the meaningful Blessing Prayer for Sisters at the Border composed by Sr. Rosemary Sullivan of Blessed Sacrament Province. This stimulated a discussion, as well as a questioning, in particular with regards to Sister Libby who was once present and appreciated at our meetings.

Typical of sports reporters following a championship game, most were trying to get a microphone in front of the key people involved with the usual inane question. “How do you feel about winning?” Or even worse, “How do you feel about losing?” All that is necessary is to say nothing and let the cameras roll. Is it not obvious what each one present is feeling at the moment?
