Barbara Nicolosi was on Relevant Radio's Morning Air today discussing good movies for Lent, a list of which she has posted on Church of the Masses. Below's a subset from which the Troglodytrix, the Troglotykes, and I will be selecting for my crack at starting a Lenten tradition this year, "Family Night With a Christ-figure Movie" (I'll see if I can come up with a catchier title).

I would have included The Passion of the Christ , except Troglotyke #1 is the only one old enough to watch it.
