Jim Caviezel who portrayed Jesus Christ in The Passion of the Christ gave a heroic speech to the Fellowship of Catholic University Students (FOCUS) Summit on January 4, 2018.
He made a surprise appearance that caused an eruption in cheers and applause. Here is some of what he said:
“The world needs proud warriors animated by their faith. Warriors like Saint Paul and Saint Luke, who risked their names, their reputations to take their faith, their love for Jesus into the world. God is calling each one of us, each one of you to do great things, but how often we fail to respond.”
“The great saint of Aushwitz, Saint Maximilian Kolbe said that indifference is the greatest sin of the twentieth century. Oh, my brothers and sisters it is the greatest sin of the twenty-first century as well. We must shake off this indifference, this destructive tolerance of evil. Only our faith and the wisdom of Christ can save us, but it requires warriors ready to risk their reputations, their names, even our very lives to stand for the truth. Set yourselves apart from this corrupt generation. Be saints. You weren’t made to fit in. You were born to stand out.”
