Fr. James Martin, SJ, interview on the movie Silence
January 18, 2017 – We had a chance to interview Fr. James Martin, SJ, for today’s radio show, “Mission of Love.” Fr. Martin was one of the spiritual and Jesuit advisors for the script and assisted Martin Scorsese and the actors in understanding Jesuit spirituality for the film Silence that is in theaters now. The movie, which depicts 17th century Jesuit missionaries in Japan, is a challenging film on faith that leaves viewers with many deeply thought-provoking questions. We discuss some of these issues with Fr. Martin. Click here to listen to our conversation about the film.
