    You should have added the “Mission” a Jesuit that was produced in the 1980s.

  2. Janis says:

    Great show, thanks for the list of movies I’m going to check some of them out!

  3. Catherine Oliveri says:

    There’s a great movie I watched on Augustine Institute’s app called Formed. The name of the movie is “San Giuseppe Moscati” about a Saint from Naples. It has English subtitles. Long movie about 3 hours which I watched in segments but very well worth the time. Such a beautiful story about a beautiful soul.

  4. Catherine Oliveri says:

    I forgot to mention in my previous post thank you for all the movies you mentioned. Will try and watch. Great show but all your shows are very entertaining and informative.

    Christian Bale, ‘Mary Mother of Jesus’ (1999)

  6. Vicky Pirozzoli says:

    Thanks so much for the list of movies! I intend to see them! I’ve seen “Doubt” – an excellent movie. Of course the Passion of the Christ is #1. Bawled in the theater when it first came out, and now always have a box of tissues by my side when I watch it. The scene you spoke of when Mary reflects back to Him as a child gets me every tine. Thanks for spreading the word in your way!

    I enjoy your discussions. My favorite Catholic movie is ” Becket”. So well done, with Richard Burton, and Peter O’ Tule

  8. Kenneth Tamargo says:

    What Beckett didn’t make the list?

  9. Liz says:

    I would vote for “Karol: A Man Who Became Pope,” the 2005 TV miniseries that is on DVD, which documents the life of St. Pope John Paul II from 1939 when he was 19 to the Papal Conclave in 1978. The actors and actresses are Polish, Italian and German and together, they give a compelling, faithful dimension to the entire movie.

  10. Rose Fontes says:

    Love your show! There is a movie called “Risen” with Joseph Fiennes, I don’t know if it’s Catholic, but it’s about the events following Christ’s death and Resurrection. Thank you for all the movie recommendations. God Bless!

    Don’t sleep on “A Quiet Place” with Emily Blunt.
