If you don't know who Eszterhas is, he wrote Basic Instinct, Sliver, and Showgirls. In other words, filth. However, a bout with cancer, a mystical experience a la St. Paul, and the power of the Eucharist have led him back to the Church. Even with numerous reservations rooted in the abuse scandal and the abominable actions of the bishops' cover-ups, he cannot turn his back on the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass:
"The Eucharist and the presence of the body and blood of Christ is, in my mind, an overwhelming experience for me. I find that Communion for me is empowering. It's almost a feeling of a kind of high."
Thanks be to God for Joe's return.
