    ACTOR JIM CAVIEZEL URGES GRADUATES TO USE TALENTS FOR GOD
    (Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania-AP) -- Actor Jim Caviezel
    (kuh-VEE'-zul) says he would have given up acting if he hadn't
    won a part in Terrence Malick's 1998 film "The Thin Red Line."
    But Caviezel told graduates at King's College in
    Pennsylvania that he took his grandmother's rosary to the
    audition at Malick's house and gave it to Malick's maid after
    learning that she had lost a rosary blessed by Mother Teresa.
    Caviezel eventually got the part of Private Witt in the film.
    Caviezel spoke about his faith at Sunday's ceremony and
    urged the Catholic college's graduating seniors to "make a
    commitment to pray, fast, go to confession and attend holy Mass"
    and use their gifts "for God's purpose" -- not their own.
    Caviezel recently finished shooting "The Passion," directed
    by Mel Gibson, in which he portrays Jesus Christ in the last 12
    hours of his life.
