Story of Pope John Paull II Aired

In my previous post was the reaction of Pope Benedict after watching the mini-series on Pope John Paul II.

CBS aired part one of the mini-series last night at 9:00pm PST. The first part focused on the life of young Father Karol Wojtyla until his ascension to the Chair of Peter in 1978. I thought English actor Cary Elwes did a fine portrayal of the Holy Father. I just wonder why the producers did not choose Elwes to portray the Pope all the way to his death. Although Voight has more clout in Hollywood, I think Elwes could have brought a sense of continuity to the whole story.

The second and final part will be aired on Wednesday, December 7 at 8:00pm PST. If you missed last night's airing, check out
