Man of the Cross – Arthur Blessitt1 min read

Listen to this article

Thecross So, I saw an advertisement for this movie, and all I saw were the big letters "The Cross" and some guy smiling, and I thought "what kind of crap is this?  Jesus smiling under the cross?"  I thought that this was another example of Christian culture gone mad.

However, it turns out, this movie is about the life of Arthur Blessitt, who has spent most of his adult life carrying a large cross around the world – from the midst of hippies during the summer of love, through Poland during it's evolution into a Democracy, as well as across deserts and jungles.  Amazing.

Blessit is also credited with leading George W. Bush to the Lord.  He's a very interesting guy, check out the trailer after the jump.
