At its heart, the Oscar and BAFTA-nominated film The Two Popes is not about Pope Francis and Pope Benedict XVI. It is about two men, who happen to be religious figures, exploring a number of themes that are at the heart of being human, of faith and belief: ‘the journey’, listening, change, mercy, loneliness and love.

The Glorious Journey provides an opportunity to watch The Two Popes with such themes in mind; to read, reflect and discuss what we can learn from it about human nature and values.

Liam Kelly opens each of the six chapters with a suggestion of a short clip from the film to watch, then provides thought-provoking reflections, including questions to prompt your own response. Each chapter ends with a prayer.

The Glorious Journey is designed to be used individually or as part of a regular group discussion. It could be adapted for use as the basis of a seasonal course for Lent or Advent.

Liam Kelly works in the Abbot’s Office at Ampleforth and is a Company Secretary, author of Sacraments Revisited and editor of Seven Last Words by the late Cardinal Basil Hume.
