Nonetheless, I have always had the opinion that you have to listen to the "other side" in order to understand where people are coming from. Yes, I am one of those people who watched The DaVinci Code. It is not my position to say that everyone should watch movies they don't agree with. I do from time to time in order to better take a Catholic stance and know what I am talking about. On the other hand, I haven't read any Harry Potter books because I don't wish to have them enter my home. But that is way off topic. I encourage everyone to be informed and if you wish, watch the following trailer, follow the links and learn more about the documentary on Our Lady. I am definitely going to pray about this and ask Our Lady's special protection while watching this.
If you live in Calgary, it is on Wedenestday, March 21st at 8pm, on channel 156 if you have Telus, channel 122 if have Shaw.

VIRGIN MARY DOCUMENTARY WORLD PREMIERE ON TV
Halifax, Nova Scotia. March 8, 2012. Blessed Mother. Star of the Sea. Queen of Heaven. Madonna. Our Lady. She goes by many names and is celebrated by both Christians and Muslims around the world. She is one of the most celebrated women in history, even though little is actually known about her. She gave birth to the one of the most famous historical figures of all time, but she is only mentioned in the bible seven times. Each year millions of people around the world do pilgrimages to shrines dedicated to her and many claim to experience miracles.
Our Lady is a one hour documentary that chronicles the life and significance of the Blessed Virgin Mary, and her apparitions and appearances on earth. Since 1981, Mary has been appearing in one of the most visited religious sites on the planet: Medjugorje, Bosnia. The film follows a pilgrimage led by New Brunswick native Marie Desjardins as she and a dozen others journey to Medjugorje for the 30th anniversary of these spiritual events.
Our Lady is created, written, and directed by Michael MacDonald and produced by Edward Peill of Halifax-based Tell Tale Productions Inc.
"Medjugorje is potentially the most important event in modern history. It is a call to action for all to put their own interests aside to serve their fellow human beings." says MacDonald. "As the Blessed Virgin said to the visionaries, God is real. He asks us to live like eternal beings - to remember that our pains and sufferings are only temporary. We must prepare ourselves daily by learning to love, and to accept love."
The film features world-renowned Marian experts Judith Dupre, Lesley Hazelton, and Charlene Spretnak as they reveal the role that Mary has played over the past 2000 years and the devotion she has fostered in so many followers around the world.
A new iPhone app called iMary will also be released in conjunction with the premiere of the Our Lady documentary. The iMary mobile app is the ultimate smartphone accessory for anyone interested in the Virgin Mary. The app features a complete and detailed database of all the Marian shrines across Canada with a geo-locator function indicating the distance from the user's location. It also contains a comprehensive list of devotions, a Marian calendar, and a rosary. The iMary app is available on iTunes with a portion of the proceeds from each sale being donated to charity.
Our Lady will have its world broadcast premiere on VisionTV on Wednesday, March 21, 2012 at 10 PM ET / 7 PM PT (Check local listings). VisionTV is Canada's only English language cable and satellite television analog specialty channel that airs multi-faith, multicultural and family-oriented entertainment programming.
Our Lady was produced in association with VisionTV, ZoomerMedia Limited, and CTS TV with funding from the Canada Media Fund, and Provincial and Federal tax credits.
