“…if you are a saint, that means you stand for something.”
Interesting insights from a self-styled agnostic, Roland Joffé:
In a way, it was Josemaria’s very controversiality that made him interesting, Joffé suggested, adding, “I don’t think an uncontroversial saint is a very good idea. I’m not quite sure how you could be an uncontroversial saint, because … if you are a saint, that means you stand for something.”
As reviewer Steven Greydanus notes, Roland seems ‘God-haunted’. Particularly noteworthy are his lucid comments on the actual implications of freedom of choice – or Free Will – one of my favorite topics.
