    Awesome! :D

  • Kristen Nations

    Too fast! Loved the video but, leave Lone Ranger & Tonto out. That was odd. Agree w/ community part but, odd people to choose.

  • Dan Murrow

    for anyone who can’t read that fast, use the PAUSE button.

  • Jakob

  • Katia

    Catholics ARE Christians.

    So many people have downloaded this video recently that the site won’t let anyone else do it for 24 hours! Glad that it’s so popular, but bad for me. :-(

      A good problem to have but sorry it happened! A second copy is available until the first one is freed up again. See the link above.

    I enjoyed the Lent in 2 minutes very much but I agree with others that it was too fast. Might have been better as Lent in 2.5/3 minutes or cut something out. However, don’t cut out Tonto or the Lone Ranger!

    Very informative. But, I like most,
    felt that it played much to fast. I am a fast reader. And, I had to replay twice. Please slow down. On a positive point, a very good a information to the point presentation! Thank you !

    I like it. Straight to the point … no frills. However, it moved somewhat too fast.
