Uncle Eddy's E-mail -- March 26
(entered heaven in 286)
You can count on my prayers for your friend and fellow actor. It is a pity that he has wandered from the Church, but you can be sure that God will make use of your efforts to help him find his way back. Perhaps by opening night you will be offering your performance up together for God´s greater glory. In all honesty, I don´t think he´s too far away. From what you tell me of your first substantial conversation, he seems to have received sound instruction at some point. You said that he remarked, "I know that we are not supposed to want fame and fortune, but I know myself, and I would be lying to myself if I pretended that I don´t want my acting career to win me fame and fortune. Maybe it´s a sin, but it´s the truth." From such a remark you can see that his conscience has not yet been completely tamed. Keep your conversations turning around that point, the motivation behind an actor´s (or anyone´s, for that matter) search for success. The Holy Spirit will give you some openings there, I imagine. From seeing his need to have nobler motives, you can nudge him towards meeting that need through a return to prayer and the sacraments.
