Gift Page #4


For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing;
it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.

Ephesians 2:8 - 9



Music playing is
Gabriel's Oboe
Performed by James Galway
From the 1986 movie The Mission
Composed by Ennio Morricone

The best scene in the movie for me is summarized below.

Mercenary and slaver Rodrigo Mendoza (Robert De Niro) makes his living kidnapping natives and selling them to nearby plantations.
Mendoza subsequently finds his fiancee cheating on him with his half-brother Felipe. He kills Felipe in a duel. Mendoza
spirals into depression. Father Gabriel visits and challenges Mendoza to undertake a suitable penance.
Mendoza accompanies the Jesuits on their return journey, dragging a heavy bundle containing his
armor and sword. After initially tense moments upon reaching the outskirts of the natives'
territory, though they recognize him and Mendoza expects to be killed, the
natives embrace a tearful Mendoza and cut away his heavy bundle.
The natives show Mendoza great mercy, grace and
undeserving love.
