Gardening in containers is an excellent choice for almost every gardener.  Containers can be used in many places — a large patio, or a small patio, a bare spot or a shared spot.

John Mulderig 0 74 Article rating: No rating

NEW YORK. Lent is intended to be a period of ongoing or renewed conversion both for the faithful and for those about to enter the church as together they prepare for the annual celebration of the Lord’s passion, death and resurrection. Spiritual transformation can be a difficult experience to depict on screen but some films have succeeded in portraying it well.

Following, in alphabetical order, are five classic movies and one contemporary production that showcase people’s ability to change their lives for the better. Unless otherwise noted, the OSV News classification of each is A-II — adults and adolescents. Motion Picture Association ratings are listed where applicable. All six titles are available on disc and/or for streaming.
