The Children of Men

Humanity is dying, hope is ended.

What happens when women stop having children? This is the basis of this adaptation of PD James' book. I cannot help thinking it is what is going to happen if we fail to take the Church's teaching seriously.

Do comment.

If you have seen the film yet say something about it.

I don't think it is a comment on the world; but it is a comment on the West, which seems without hope.

Most of Western Europe has already fallen into the "death spiral," with population replacement rates below 1.3 children per fertile female. Mathematically speaking, there is no way for a society to reverse its decline once that threshold is crossed.

I think most of the West has fallen into the "hope spiral". Only Christ can restore hope.

I went to see it with my friend Theresa-Veronica, she used to be a postulant. We just had to find a church afterward and say the Rosary, it was so moving.
