Reaction To The Movie "What Dreams May Come"

569 words - 3 pages

The purpose of life, according to Catholics, is to know, love, and serve God to be able to join Him someday in heaven. When I think of heaven, it is not a place only for Catholics, as we have learned in the past quarter about the different beliefs of other religions. No religion should be shunned or looked down upon. I believe that God will judge all other non-Catholic worshipers based on how well they adhered to the values and beliefs of their own religion. Heaven, for me, is a place wherein everything is so perfect and right. On the other hand, hell for me is a place full of suffering and sorrow. The movie "What Dreams May ...view middle of the document...

The best thing is to be prepared. In the movie, the wife committed suicide and it will take her another long lifetime to correct that mistake. Whether this portrayal is true or not, I think that the most painful thing about life after death is regretting. Regretting that you were not able to show your loved ones how much they mean to you, regretting that you could have done this and that, etc. The wife was very lucky to have a husband who loved her so much that brought her back to the light. What they had was something very special, a bond that neither hell nor another lifetime could take away. I couldn't help but cry when Chris decided to stay in hell with his wife rather than in heaven. This shows the greatness of love, which must be the greatest of all things. What Chris did for his wife could also illustrate Jesus' death for us. Jesus suffered as if he was in hell before he died to be able to save us. The same was true with Chris who went through hell to be able to save his wife. I guess this movie was titled "What Dreams May Come" because of the uncertainty of the future. A good dream would remain as just a dream if we do not do anything to make it happen. A dream could also turn into a nightmare if we do things that would cause us harm.To sum it all up, we should ask help from God in all our undertakings because it is only Him who knows all. God has a plan for each and every one of us but it is up to us to make that dream come true. It is our faith and loved ones that make us strong.
