Did You Know?


In the history of the Church there has been only one meeting between the Pope and the Patriarch of Moscow and it took place in 2016 in Cuba. The relations between the Holy Roman Church and the Russian Orthodox Church are historically tense and that's why Cuba as neutral ground was chosen for this meeting. There has never been a meeting between the pope and the patriarch in Rome, such a meeting doesn't seem very likely at the moment, but should it ever happen it would be an enormous event covered by media from all over the world (not like depicted here).

Sofia: How did it go with the Patriarch of Moscow?
(2016): The Patriarch of Moscow is more boring than watching golf on television.

You Can't Have White Smoke!
16 July 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

This is a phenomenal series. I'm not Catholic and I'm pretty uncertain when it comes to the teachings of Christianity. But I am aware what an impact Catholicism and other world religions have on our world (perhaps way too much). This series captured the ethos of the Vatican. I don't know how much was spent on sets and costumes and creating such a world. In this final one, we have the final determination of Pope Pius XIII as to what should be done with the pedophile Archbishop. We have Lenny beginning to see the value of his flock, but there is quite a concluding scene. I loved the scene where he tells the little kids that they must be bad because the rain is Christ crying because of them. He say he meant it as a joke, but he hated being there. This allows for some epiphany as the episode rolls to a conclusion. And he finally turns his head. I guess if there is to be a second season, it's going to be way down the line because of commitments by Jude Law and the director and creator. This is one of the most interesting productions I've ever seen. It is intelligent, edgy, and new.
