Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

New film about Jesus Christ premieres

2015-03-29

Since the beginning of film, Jesus' life has been brought to the big screen by dozens of directors. Óscar Parra de Carrizosa now joins the list. The director of the award-winning "Under a Canopy of Stars" presents his latest film, "The Spine of God."

ÓSCAR PARRA DE CARRIZOSA
Director, "The Thorn of God"
"Although there are more than 150 films about Jesus, 'The Thorn of God' provides a distinctive perspective which until now has not been seen on the big screen. It's close to the historical Jesus, the Jesus we talk about more in an archaeology course, without leaving the faith."

The film covers three years of Jesus of Nazareth's preaching from the point of view of the Apostles. The director wants to show Jesus as God and as man.

ÓSCAR PARRA DE CARRIZOSA
Director, "The Thorn of God"
"The Jesus of 'The Thorn of God' is a smiling Jesus, a Jesus who laughs. He is a Christ who lives in community with his Apostles, who ultimately are his friends. And he is Christ as a man, as man and as a true God. But as a true man, a suffering Christ who also does well."

His two natures appear in scenes like this one, which shows the resurrection of his friend Lazarus.

"Take away the stone."
"Lord, he has been buried for four days and is already decomposing."
"Did I not tell you that if you believed you would see the glory of God? Peter, John, James, help them to remove the stone!"

Some of the scenes were shot in Capernaum. Moreover, they have paid attention to the smallest details. For example, here at the Last Supper, the crockery is typical of the era.

The film opens March 27th. It is a story that will help many to relive Easter in a more profound way.
