Dear Editor:

The Knights of Columbus, Savanna, and the Savanna Times Theater are honored to present a free showing of Mel Gibson's “The Passion of the Christ.”

This is the-world changing story of Jesus Christ’s persecution and crucifixion in a very graphic movie that includes all language spoken in Arabic (subtitled).

The movie will be presented at 2 p.m. Saturday, April 20, at the Savanna Times Theater.

There is no better way to really appreciate the Easter holiday as it is meant to be, a celebration of the sacrifice and resurrection of our Christ. Jesus brought with Him the new covenant of love and mercy and died so that we may be saved.

This is part of the Knights of Columbus, St John The Baptist Church movie ministry which presents movies each month for free. The Savanna Times Theater co-hosts and also offers refreshments and popcorn, etc. for sale.

This movie may be too graphic of the violence Jesus suffered at the hands of the Romans for small children. It is very realistic as it really happened.

Please feel free to make an event of it and bring your loved ones and friends.

John H. McConnel Jr.

Knight, Council 890
