Question of the Week: Favorite Catholic Movies


Question of the Week at

Last week when I was rehearsing for Mass with the other musicians, the topic of old movies came up, and before we knew it, we were deep into quoting lines and telling stories from some of our favorite films. This trip down Memory Lane led to much reminiscing about movies like The Trouble with Angels, which takes place in a Catholic boarding school in the early 1960s. (It’s a “scathingly brilliant idea” to watch this one with your family!)


What’s your family’s favorite Catholic movie?

  1. I love The Nativity. It made me really have an appreciation for St. Joseph and the sacrifices he made for his little family. My cousin, sister, and I watched “The Song of Bernadette” over and over whewhen we were young. I never heard of “The Trouble with Angels,” I look forward to renting it though!
