Director Volker Schlondorff Talks About 'The Ninth Day' - Steven D. Greydanus

Volker Schlondorff was so intrigued by the real-life story of a Catholic priest forced by his Nazi captors to make a life and death choice, he had to film it. ‘I have a hard time,’ says the Jesuit-educated filmmaker, ‘making any decision whatsoever.’  Read more...

Don Arrigo Beccari: A Safe Haven In Villa Emma - Catholic Educator's Resource Center

It was a long train ride from Yugoslavia to Italy. No one knew what to expect. The children were good actors and hid their fear in silence.

Einstein's Final Quest - Walter Isaacson

For all my newfound piety, I was still fifteen years old, and all too conscious of “cool.” Just months before, I’d left behind several years of juvenile delinquency and accepted Jesus as my personal Lord and Savior.
