“1917”, War, and Faith

Source: Bishop Robert Barron on YouTube
N.B. this video is not so much about the film 1917, but more about the impact that World War One had on Europe and the Catholic faith.

The hit movie “1917” vividly depicts the horrors of World War I, including its great spiritual peril. In this episode, Bishop Barron reflects on the Great War, discussing its impact on twentieth-century theology and philosophy, the Pope, and the Catholic Church’s relationship to the world. A listener asks why Jesus chose to live a quiet, mostly obscure life.
