Gus talks about the Netflix movie The Two Popes. He confesses he hasn't seen the movie, and isn't a Netflix subscriber, but has read some negative reviews online describing it as "propaganda." Gus asks listeners to call in who've actually seen it and give their reviews.

Keeping with the movie theme, Gus asks listeners to call up and talk about their favorite Catholic-themed movie. Some of the movies recommended are:

- I Am David

- The Mission

- Evan Almighty

- It's a Wonderful Life

- The Two Popes

- Faustina: Love and Mercy

- A Man For All Seasons

- The Cardinal

- Schindler's List

- Bells of St. Mary's

- The Fourth Wise Man

- Mighty Max

- The Robe

- I Confess

- The Song of Bernadette

- Rudy

- The Exorcist

    You forgot ‘The Way’
    My favorite

    One of your callers mentioned “Going My Way” because “Bells of Saint Mary’s” was the sequel to that movie. The Knights recently published an article of 9 must-see movies,

    I would also add “Lillies of the Field” starring Sydney Poitier.

    There are Catholic themes in the Sound of Music movie: sisters, discerning one’s vocation, fear, bravery, adoption, marriage, giving up wealth and power to do what is right against pressure and the mob of public opinion. Seen by so many multiple times that one may take for granted?

    Fr Richard Leonard wrote a book, “Movies That Matter” and he gives a talk with movie clips at Religious Education Congress that I enjoy and learn from every year. One of his picks is Babette’s Feast because there is symbolism that one may miss. May we all be worthy of the heavenly banquet!
