  1. My hope remains that these films give people pause and prompt them to question God’s existence and their relationship with Him. Too often we consider the Catholic Church as a political entity or hierachy; however, the Church’s every move stems in its relationship with Jesus Christ. Pope Francis continues to reflect this relationship like his predecessors and model Christian charity. Another well done film featuring high-profile actors and actresses, including Eva Longoria, is “For Greater Glory.” The film portrays leaders in the Cristero Wars and their defense of human rights and religious freedom. Well worth everyone’s time, regardless of your religious practices.
