I must confess
17 December 2007 | by (Salt Lake City, Utah) – See all my reviews

I must confess that I was a little disappointed in this show. The Vatican has such a rich and fascinating history and tons of secrets that I wanted to see more. But, I guess they could only show so much in 50 minutes. The filmmakers touched upon three major events that were happening at the Vatican. The first was the ordination of three new bishops. They interviewed one, but the story lacked any real depth. The next two were more interesting. New recruits for the Swiss Guard who swore an allegiance to the Holy Father and, the beatification of 5 individuals considered for sainthood. Again the stories were skimmed over.

There was an interesting piece of archive footage of the Vatican illuminated with thousands of torches, that was interesting to see.
