New Scorsese film 'Silence' tells story of Jesuits in Japan - Independent Catholic News
New Scorsese film 'Silence' tells story of Jesuits in Japan - Independent Catholic News: For Christians across the world, faith is a source of hope and comfort. Jesus's triumph over death offers a reason for joy whatever the circumstances, and a promise that light will ultimately overcome darkness. But if we only talk about victory, we risk denying the reality of the other half of life. Where is God in our doubt, in our defeat - and even in our despair? These thorny questions are at the heart of Silence, a new historical epic film from master director Martin Scorsese.
