Last edited 15th April 2014

Who doesn't love a story about an estranged ice princess, a dynamic mountain man/reindeer duo and a snowman obsessed with warm weather? We all loved the movie "Frozen" and its single, "Let It Go."

Fr. Robert Barron Comments on "Noah"
Last edited 4th April 2014

Darren Aronofsky’s cinematic re-telling of the story of Noah has certainly stirred people up. While quite a few reviewers, both religious and non-religious, have given the film high marks many Christians, both Evangelical and Catholic, have registered a far less than enthusiastic reaction.
