A moment of levity in the midst of the abdication & conclave

UPDATE: 2/19/13 Having watched the movie, I’m speechless. I thought it was going to be just a humorous movie, but it turned out the opposite of what I expected. This movie is not worth watching and I am very disappointed!

In the midst of Pope Benedict’s abdication and the election of a new Pope, there is so much chatter. The social networks are going a 1000 miles a minute. Blogs have new stories every hour. The media is putting a twist on every angle they can. In the mean time, we are all a little anxious. We went through the period of shock and sadness at the Holy Father’s announcement. And now there is the waiting. What is going to happen? Will the next Pope follow the same course that Benedict has been steering the barque of Peter for the past 8 years? The New Liturgical movement has made so much progress under the Holy Father’s leadership – watching or attending Mass at St. Peter’s is a very deeply moving experience. Pope Benedict has become a real Papa to all who love the Holy Church.

Yet, I think we all need a break from the constant stream of information. The resignation and election are all very important to us all and to the entire world, but we could all use a  moment of levity.

I received a text message from a friend, recommending an Italian movie with English sub-titles. If the movie is anything like the trailer, it is really funny. I’m going to watch it on my night off tomorrow.

Check out the preview:

  3. I watched this movie not that long ago, it is very funny, but at the same time it reveals the immensity of the position of the Pope.
