My sister and her husband took me to see this Jesus Christ Superstar when I was about 10 I think, I must say it had a profound effect on me. It had just come out and that was 1973, WOW, nearly 40 years ago.
It really is an incredible production, the music is beautiful and it really tells the story of Jesus in such a beautiful sad way.
I have the video, I may watch it today. I've watched most of it with my child, I edit parts(the lashings) I like her to have a broad understanding of all religions, and this is the one I am most familiar with.
I'm not a practicing Catholic, I do believe in God and I'm spiritual but my main motto is "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you" it's so simple, treat others as you want to be treated.
Anyways, you can watch the rest of the videos on Youtube or rent the movie.
Last year I was in Oaxaca, I took my daughter to the Church of Santa Domingo, a 500 year old church covered in gold. We sat thru part of the mass, (too long for my little girl to sit still). It was really special.
This year is much different, it's about Easter Eggs and spending time with family and enjoying the day. We could go to church, but just watching this movie, sort of brings it all home for me.
There's a saying "You can take the girl out of the church, but you can't take the church out of the girl."
I stopped going to church when I was 14, but I still pray alot and I have recieved so many miracles, too many to count.
I count my blessings all the time. And I am thankful that I have an open mind. That I have been able to expose myself and my child to lots of different enviroments and beliefs.
There is no one right way. We just have to all work together, to get along, to strive for Peace.
Peace be with you!!
