Benedict the XVI recently saw the made-for t.v. movie “Karol, A Man Who Became Pope” along with some 4,000 special guests in a Vatican auditorium. 

 

The two-and-a-half hour film depicts the life of Karol Wojtyla from the beginning of World War II and the Nazi invasion of Poland to his election as pope in 1978.
