Friends, in the latest “Bishop Barron Presents,” I’m delighted to be joined by Shia LaBeouf, the actor famous for “Transformers,” “Honey Boy,” and “The Peanut Butter Falcon,” among other films. His most recent role is as the young Padre Pio in a new biopic on the great saint. In our conversation, we discuss:

  • Method acting
  • Prayer
  • Suffering
  • The ego
  • The traditional Latin Mass
  • Padre Pio
  • Shia’s time with the Capuchin friars
  • And more

Stay tuned for future “Bishop Barron Presents” conversations. These intellectually invigorating discussions feature conversations at the crossroads of faith and culture, belief and unbelief, the Church and world. Help Bishop Barron continue to produce more videos like this:
