Paul callings come when we least expect them I remember mine vividly I had this experience I was 19 years old sitting in a movie theater in my hometown of Mount Vernon Washington the movie had ended and out there in the darkness befriended only by my basketball in the adjacent seat I had a sensation in my heart that made me think that I’m supposed to be an actor that this is what God crafted me for that this is what he wanted of me yes my rational sense intervened I knew nothing about acting no agents no managers I can’t memorize to save my life yet I had a conviction I had a call cut to the spring of 2000 I was offered the role of Edmond Dantes and The Count of Monte Cristo it was a new abdication of the Dumont classic it’s very stressful period this is the first time I ever had to carry a film on my own and here I was at what I long wanted to achieve but I had no peace everything on that film was a battle my character Edmond Dantes is unjustly imprisoned while they’re both in the book and in the film he carves on the wall God will give me justice and with all the odds set against him this one solitary man is committed to freeing himself and vanquishing evil even the evil within himself there is a wonderful scene between Edmond and a fellow prisoner a priest played by the great Richard Harris in the pit of self-pity in a moment of real despair while the priest is on the ground dying he turns to Edmond and says your final lesson do not commit the crime you now serve the sentence for remember God sayeth vengeance is mine and I looked down to him and say but I don’t believe in God he says to me it does not matter ed Montt he believes in you and he does God loves each one of us personally and he is there for us even in our darkest moments of despair after shooting Monte Cristo I inexplicably get a call from Mel Gibson my agent didn’t call my manager didn’t call I didn’t know Mel Gibson I wasn’t politicking for the role because nobody knew it was happening no Gibson wants me to play Jesus Christ he wants the guy with the initials of JC who just happens to be 33 years of age to play Jesus Christ is that a coincidence I don’t think so is your life a coincidence or is it all just a chance some of you may be miserable right now confused uncertain of the future hurting this is not the time to back offer to give in when I was up there on the Clarke cross I learned that in his suffering was our Redemption remember the servant is no greater than the master each of us must carry our own cross there is a price for our faith for our freedoms I have been literally Scourge debt by the Whip’s crucified struck by lightning yes open-heart surgery so what happens after five and a half months of hypothermia one day during this shoot my arm was wedged under that heavy beam when someone yanked it in the other direction my muscles wrenched my shoulder separated I felled it to the ground dropped my head into the sand this take now remains in the movie in the later part of the film Jesus experiences a shoulder separation well I now know what that felt like every day I had to pick up that thing it was like a penance it ripped into my shoulder tearing up my flesh and with each passing hour it got heavier it had this been shot in a studio you never would have seen that performance the suffering made my performance just as it makes our lives some of us now and you know them embrace of fake Christianity where it’s all happy talk I call it happy Jesus and glory guys there was a lot of pain and suffering before the resurrection your path will be no different so embrace your cross and race toward your goal I want you to go out into this pagan world I want you to have the courage to step into this pagan world and shamelessly express your faith in public the world needs proud warriors animated by their faith warriors like Saint Paul and st. Luke who risked their names their reputations to take their faith their love for Jesus into the world God is calling each one of us each one of you to do great things but how often we failed to respond dismissing it as some mental blurp it is time for our generation now to accept that call the call of God urging all of us to give ourselves entirely to him to see that gentle hand guiding your path but you first make must make the commitment to start praying too fast to meditate on the Holy Scriptures and to take the holy sacraments seriously for we are a culture now in decline the people in danger of succumbing to our accesses our whole world is entrenched in sin and they’re in the quiet sub our hearts God is calling out to us each one of us to give ourselves entirely to him and how often we ignore him ignore that sweet call the great saint of Auschwitz st. Maximilian Kolbe said that indifference is the greatest sin of the 20th century all my brothers and sisters it is the greatest sin of the 21st century as well we must shake off this indifference this destructive tolerance of evil but only our faith in the wisdom of Christ can save us but it requires warriors ready to risk their reputations their names even our very lives to stand for the truth set yourselves apart from this corrupt generation be Saints you were made to fit in you were born to stand out for in our country now we are only too happy to go with the flow we have a shrined of freedom now we’re all choices or equal no matter what the consequences are do you honestly think this is true freedom Pope John Paul the great said democracy cannot be sustained without a shared commitment to certain moral truths about the human person in the human community the basic question before a Democratic Society is this how are we to live together seeking an answer to this question can society exclude moral truth and moral reasoning every generation of Americans needs to know that freedom exists not to do what you like but having the right to do with your art that is the freedom that I wish for you freedom from sin freedom from your weaknesses freedom from this slavery that sin makes out of all of us that is the freedom that is worth dying for it reminds me what Mel Gibson first in tone in his Academy award-winning film Braveheart when he said to his ragtag army and I say to you tonight I see before me a whole army of my countrymen here in defiance of tyranny you have come to fight is free man free man you are what would you do with our freedom would you fight this man says no we’ll run and we’ll live yeah fight and you may die run and you’ll live for at least a while and dying in your beds many years from now would you be willing to trade all the years from this state of that for one chance just one chance to come back here and tell our enemies that you can take our lives but you can never take our freedom every man dies not every man truly lives you you we all must fight for that authentic freedom and live my friends by God we must live and with the Holy Spirit as your shield and Christ as your sword may you join Saint Michael and all the angels and sending Lucifer and his henchmen straight right back to Hell where they belong [Applause] Sall means great one what is Paul mean little one so if we wish to be great and the eyes of God what do we need to belittle what do we need to be sorry little may God love you and keep you and guide you all the days of your life and I don’t see you here I can’t wait to see you in heaven I love you god bless you fight hard

  1. A pope is a sinner like us. God will judge everyone equally. We all are equal in the eyes of God. Seek not the creation but the creator Lord Jesus Christ.

  8. I dont like him anymore. I used to, but then realized that he elevates himself on a pedestal so high that he doesnt even answer fans, or when people mail him to try and work with him. Not one single message back after thanking him for his work, and application.

  9. Catholic means universal. It is for all who is willing to pledge their belief in Jesus and HIS bride and live the Sacraments and its traditions. We are sinners past and present. The one true Church is a hospital for sinners not an exclusive club for the perfect. We, sinners perfectly made in God's image, are the Church; everyday we carry up our crosses and struggle to hopefully reach our heavenly home. The fact that our past Catholic ancestors and present Catholic brothers/sisters are far from perfect but the Church still perseveres in spite of times of corruption – pedophilia, genocide, and inquisitions, etc.- even after over two millennia! All this is what makes the one true Church awesome.

    …And it all started with the Shepherd and his 12 imperfect apostles.

  10. Hey guys, god does not exist, jahwe, allah..whatever you call that imagine
    ary creature – it does not exist. Also, thousands of other gods does not exist.

  11. Going to show this to my 8th grade Religion students. This will be shown in the second to last class. I will assign them questions from this video to get their reactions then have the final class be a discussion of this video. This is something.

  12. Dont look at men! Look at Jesus! The reason why so many people leave Christianity is because they look around too often and dont look up enough. Stop thinking about doctrines and religion. Read your Bible and seek Jesus and seek a church based on the Bible in every way. If the doctrine you follow goes against the Bible, trust the Holy Spirit that lives in you. Read the Bible, pray for humility and direction and be ready to obey when God tells you to move away from a certain doctrine. Churches dont save people, religions dont save people. JESUS DOES.

  13. Jim.. I always cry every time I watch your movie … your message was so touch…Jesus Blessed You From Timor Leste🇹🇱

  14. Worst things are coming for us lets be prepare and fight against all the evils who are governing this world.
    Whit JESÚS and his holly Mother Mary.

  15. There is no resurection without a cross, there is no true catholicism without suffering pain with God Jesus Christ on his cross. Amen

  16. Only a single speech error right at the end, whilst reinforcing the need to be humble… Perhaps an ordained error at that precise moment… For that reason…

  17. You are a Catholic. Jesus was nothing like this. I think about the simplistic message Jesus gave us. Now listen!!!! Feed my flock Peter. All your traditions are man made. God forgive those who change the WORDS OF GOD.

  18. How can you be Jesus in a movie and the next kill a boat load of military and families in the movie De Javu

  19. God bless you JC. Love this testimony of God's Perfect Love and Freedom. Amen! God Loves Each of Us Individually!

  20. Moves me to tears, his love for Jesus is my hope for all of us. For the Father loved us so much that he sent his only Son to die for us, so that we may have eternal life. Blessed be the Lord our God. ❤ ✝

  21. Jim Caviziel,
    Thank you for speaking the truth and helping your followers to convert & get close to God ♥️🙏♥️ blessings

  22. Amen, a call to Christ is a call to persecution. For the world never loved Christ how can we expect them to love those who follow him. We must get to know Jesus, to truly stand for him wherever we go. Amen.

  23. Jim is amazing. Passion of the Christ was perfection and I’m confident the resurrection will be a blessing to the world.

  24. Jim you are on half way..
    There is no true Christianity on that way, you can not be in the heaven eventually.
    Only Christianity is intacted religion like it was until 1054 th.

    You must turn right on that crossway and join orthodox church if you want to have a chance for salvation.

  25. He is mesmerizing….A prophet sent by God…May we have ears to hear and hearts that are open to believing….

  26. Mr. Jesus said that everyone should follow all 613 Torah laws and he did not abolish a single one. So, do tell me, where are the Christians who follow all these Jewish laws? One in a billion friends, one in a billion.

  27. This man is my inspiration to reach more closer to Jesus Christ.Jesus will take care of you, good man. Love u..

  28. Whatever we are remember brothers and sisters we are children of the most high…JESUS…PRAISE GOD .. PRAISE JESUS…LETS FIGHT FOR JESUS AND HIS GLORY….see you all in the other side

  29. "Spirit Filled" is how we should all continue to walk and live. Let us walk with boldness but, humble at heart. Be fearless but, with great reverance and honor to God. Wearing peace and forgiveness as coat of humility and love for one another. Lord bless all my brothers and sisters in their personal path of righetousness. May they all find peace in their stewardship, and their servitude to God and each other. May our Lord and Savior bless you all in Christ Jesus I pray, Amen!🙏🏽

  30. Thank you Jim for your wonderful speeches in your life changed wen you believe Jesus and Catholic beliefs.Yes, St Michael will protect you and your loved ones.Mother Mary led you in a proper way and all the angel's who guards you and your loved ones.God bless!

  34. Jim cavezille is a liar he's now calling Mary the co redemtress of Jesus what a joke and one of the biggest lies I've ever heard since my walk with my champion Jesus Christ

  35. God blessed you Jim Caviezel. Thank you…thank you truly for your commitment to tell the real truth about God our only true saviour. God is the only one who can saved our souls from burning in hell. I love my Catholic Faith. I need my Faith in my daily life to stay away from evil wicked ways.
