Master and Commander, an example of life

I rode my bike to work in the cool air of the morning. I was listening to a great soundtrack from Master and Commander.  What a great movie! The ship scenario can never be beat; the movie is an example of loyalty, tragedy, respect, dignity, community and true friendship, where everybody was there for everybody; they had to, they were all in the same boat! Their reason for being there had to be kept in mind for their survival and their mission. Perhaps that is why the Church is seen as a ship, we are all in the same boat if you will. We might ask if this scenario is true for us today or are we drifting by the very winds of our own selfish sails?
