I ended my Lenten fast after watching this movie. The heart of the movie is focusing how Christians became aware of the joy of being martyred and happy they were going to be with the the Lord. It was heart breaking to see how much suffering our brothers and sisters were subject to under Emperor Nero. My main criticism was they gave women equal authoritative roles with men. In one scene it wasn’t clear whether Luke cured the child by his medical expertise or through Gods intervention. The theme of the movie is, “Love your enemies and do Good to those who persecute you.” It works for me. Ha. Funny but that’s what’s coming out of ROME these days as well with his own movie coming out soon.
