I received an email about a new film about Pope Pius XII that is in development for release this year!

I’m so excited about this!  If you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you know that I love Pope Pius XII and feel that he has been treated unfairly in the decades following his death–portrayed as a cowardly Nazi sympathizer who did nothing to help the Jews and others who were being brutally captured and killed.  This film promises to portray him accurately, as the hero he was, and was regarded as during his lifetime.

For more information, see the film’s Web site and/or Facebook page. (The image is from the latter.)
