Pope Francis: Has He Seen this Movie?

Pope Francis Has He Seen the Movie?

Pope Francis recently made a pilgrimage to Assisi, home of his namesake saint, on the Feast Day of St. Francis. The 12th century saint known for his humility, voluntary poverty, and attention to the needs of the poor. The 21st century’s Pope Francis says today’s Church should follow suit and shun worldliness.

So Francis is the Pope’s favorite saint. His Holiness also has a favorite film, Fellini’s “La Strada” (not “Babette’s Feast” as previously reported). “La Strada,” a 20th century masterpiece, stars Anthony Quinn, but Pope Francis sounds more like a fan of another Quinn vehicle, “The Shoes of the Fisherman“.

“Liquidate the Catholic Church,” Hamilton Nolan, Gawker
