A recent addition to the Dominicana Blog by a Student Brother who I met during the summer. I have never seen the Bourne movies, but this entry makes me really tempted to watch number two.
The whole movie is a compelling depiction of a typical path toward forgiveness. First, there is guilt about a past offense—the desire to correct what we have done. This presupposes that we have the ability to choose, that we are rational creatures and, therefore, responsible. Sometimes, by our own fault, we do not make the right choice. What do we do about it? We go in search of forgiveness, just as Jason Bourne did. He went to great lengths to express his remorse for the evil he had committed, and, even then, he left without knowing whether he was forgiven.
