I pray that they do justice for this great Pope who is destined to be one of the doctors of the Church along with the great saints like Augustine and Aquinas. He has also been one who was up to the challenges that the Church faces today and has led the Church from a Church in decline to one growing robustly with the restoration of the fundamental role of the Church which is heavenly rather than worldly. Truly today people see the Church as the ark saving humanity from a flood of sin in the world just as the ark of Noah saved man from the flood.

With Pete Seewald consulting the screenwriters, this should be phenomenal. Seewald was a purported atheist / agnostic when he met, then, Cardinal Ratzinger (later converted). It seems the Pope trusts him, as he’s sat down for 3 interview style bio-books with him thus far. IMDB is currently reporting the film to be released some time in 2014.
