    To Kill a Mockingbird was a fantastic book and movie. The book and movie, according to Jordison, were quite similar. There were only a few minor variations throughout the movie. There were a couple details and characters missing. However, the movie still represented the book very well and had most of the main ideas included.

It was his responsibility to defend Tom Robinson and give him an honest trial. He may have done things out of the way, but that was just to demonstrate his point. Atticus also never

    REFLECTION ON A HOMILY BY GREGORY THE GREAT In Gregory’s homily it seems the congregation has trouble understanding the command of our Lord to love as He has. This entails loving even our enemies as Christ has. Yet, how do we love those who harm us? To often we believe that any harm to us demands a distorted form of justice.
