Fr. Robert Barron on the Movie "Cinderella"
Last edited 7th April 2015

Kenneth Branagh’s “Cinderella” is the most surprising Hollywood movie of the year, not because it subverts the traditional fairy story, but because it presents it as a deeply Christian tale. It is also a great lesson on the importance of "courage and kindness". In a world where people are pushed to be aggressive in the way they deal with others, "Cinderella" is a refreshing change. Watch this film review by Fr Robert Barron for more.

Last edited 8th February 2015

For centuries, it's here, before the tomb of St. Peter where a Pope prays, before starting his inauguration Mass. Even though the resting place of St. Peter is the very heart of the Church, few people know other secrets surrounding it. For example, in its chapel there's a box full of palliums the Pope gives to new archbishops as a symbol of Church unity. Italian author Marco Agostini wrote a book titled, "The Tomb and Its Memory,” to help readers understand some of these traditions.
