Given that Blessed Miquel Pro is the Patron Saint of my Blog I am quite interested in this movie on the Christeros.
This history blog has an excellent post of the history of this period in Mexico.
I am really looking forward to seeing the Movie “Of Gods and Men” when it comes out on Blu-Ray eventually. I have read nothing but rave reviews from both Christian and secular reviewers and Steven Greydanus at DecentFilms.com gives it his highest rating.
In addition the people behind what I thought was the best movie on Fatima called “The 13th Day” have released a documentary on Fatima. Some were not fans of the “The 13th Day” since it didn’t perfectly follow the events of Fatima, well this documentary should make a find companion to it.
In the midst of this of course we also have Showtime’s 8-week series on one of the Popes. Since it is Showtime out of 265 popes you knew it would be about Rodrigo Borgia – Pope Alexander VI the most notorious pope in history. Not to mention the Borgia family – though the family later produced Saint Francis Borgia. I can’t fault Showtime for picking such an interesting piece of history, it would be nice for a little balance considering how many Popes were saints and martyrs and the equally rich history surrounding them.
