An Actor’s Speech Worth Listening To

Darn. How did I miss the Golden Globe Awards?

But then again, do you miss something when you never planned to watch them in the first place?

Hours of actors giving speeches.

Next to politicians, academics, and news media heavyweights, I can think of few groups that value themselves and their opinions more; with exceptions, obviously.

The self-importance oozes.

Genuine humility brings so much more credibility.

Genuine people have a way that dictates truth.

Jim Caviezel has a genuine way about him. And, gasp, he’s an actor (Count of Monte Cristo, The Passion of the Christ).

With the Golden Globes on television Sunday night – but not on my TV – I cued up Caviezel on YouTube. Caviezel addressed the Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS) convention in Chicago last week. There were bishops, priests, and nuns giving talks.

And the actor.

“Set yourselves apart from this corrupt generation. Be saints. You weren’t made to fit in. You were born to stand out.”

I only like to watch the awards shows or the red carpets to see what they wear. My home version of Fashion Police.
