The Two Popes: A SLHour Windows to the Soul Special

In case you don’t already know, The Two Popes is a film starring Anthony Hopkins as Pope Benedict XVI and Jonathan Pryce as Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, who later becomes Pope Francis.

It is a fictional story directed by Brazilian Fernando Meirelles and written by New Zealander Anthony McCarten (who also wrote The Theory of Everything and Bohemian Rhapsody). It is an adaptation of McCarten’s 2017 play The Pope.

You may have heard some positive things about the film and maybe some controversies. I thought of inviting our SLHour “film expert”, Sr. Marie Paul Curley, to give us her take:

 

You can also read Sr. Marie Paul’s blog post on the The Two Popes at her Windows to the Soul site.

Heavenly Father,
Lent is hard.
When we want to watch a show, show us a new opportunity.
When we want to eat something sweet, help us to be sweet to one another.
When we would rather play than pray, let our praise be fun.
And may a Lent that is hard make us better servants of God.
We love you, Jesus.
Amen.
