My blog gets hit more because of the Boondock Saints than for anything else, all due to an old post where I reviewed this awesome film. It was back when I had first started writing the blog and after the many comments and questions I have decided to put a little FAQ together to help people out. As it always changes with outside links please let me know if there are any broken links.
1) What does Aequitas (and or veritas) mean?
Aequitas = Justice & Veritas = Truth
There are longer definitions to this question but this is the basic answer. The more literal translation of Aequitas in English would be Equality, but we all know that Truth and Justice makes a lot more sense.
2) Why is this movie such a cult classic in but not popular in the US?
This movie was set to be released around the time the tragedy in the Columbine High School happened. This was not the only movie affected, many others got either shelved or released straight to video in the US which was the case for The Boondock Saints. I think it is a more popular film in the US now since all the people that have watched are looking forward to the release of the sequel.
3) There was a sequel? Yes, and even other stuff like comics and stuff!
4) What is the family prayer, what does it mean?
The Family Prayer
“And Shepherds we shall be
For thee, my Lord, for thee.
Power hath descended forth from Thy hand
Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands.
So we shall flow a river forth to Thee
And teeming with souls shall it ever be.
In Nomeni Patri Et Fili Spiritus Sancti.” (In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit)
For more on the prayers and speeches go to the msn group.
