My favorite movie is The Keys of the Kingdom
, starring Gregory Peck as Father Chisholm, who, as the movie opens, is an elderly parish priest in
a Scottish village, who has acquired a reputation for being not sufficiently attentive to his duties, at least in the "busy" eyes of some.
A "monseigneur", sent by the archbishop to inspect Chisholm's church arrives just as the priest, characteristically, comes home from fishing at the
local brook. A good impression is not made. During the course of the evening the monseigneur's mind leans toward making a recommendation to the
archbishop that the priest be relieved of his duties.
Before retiring for the night, he sees a book on the table, which is an account of Father Chisholm's life as a priest. He starts to read and the movie
scene goes back to the beginning of the priest's career and follows it through. In the morning after having read the book to the end, the monseigneur
makes it clear that nothing and nobody will be disturbing Father Chisholm in his parish, and takes his leave.
To find out why, you will have to see the movie. It's worth it. A great story told in the classic Hollywood style by a wonderful cast.
