St. Frncis being one of my favorite saints, I really enjoyed watching the newest movie that was made on his life and the life of St. Clare as well. It is well done. This clip is a 10 minute preview of the movie, couldn't really find a trailer.

The Passion of Christ: not sure if anyone else knows this but I thought I would share it. Mel Gibson was inspired by the visions of Anne Catherine Emmerich when creating The Passion of Christ movie. Anne Catherine Emmerich was a German stigmatic and visionary who had visions on the life of Jesus and His mother and other biblical people and places. The books are great reads.
