(2016): Pius XIII appears and so do his beautiful blue-eyes... and this soft, round mouth. A dazzling image, so dazzling it blinds people. In other words, a powerful, an evocative image, not unlike that of Christ. But Pius XIII doesn't merely dazzle, he offers reassurance as well. With a magnificent speech, full of quotations in Latin, it tells them that they, the faithful, must not be afraid. And how could they be afraid, with a Pope as handsome and reassuring as Christ?

Getting Kicked by the Papal Boot
15 July 2017 | by HitchcocSee all my reviews

Pius hand the Italian Prime Minister a list of demands. He wants the government to support a bevy of very conservative demands. Opposition to abortion under any circumstances, no gay marriage, support and extension of Vatican land, and on and on. When the Prime Minister balks at this, big time political threats are made. The remainder of the episode shows Pius (Jude Law) moving into enforcement mode. He feels he is the new Jesus in some ways, and he's not about let the clergy get away with anything. There is bewilderment. One particular scene is when he asks if a priest or priests are willing to get down in the dirt of the streets and serve drug dealer and the scum of the Earth. Basically, he is telling them that they'd better be ready for this because it could easily come to be. Things are heating up.
