Did You Know...?

Did you know that Martin Sheen and Liam Neeson are Catholic?  Who knew!?

Liam Neeson was named for his parish priest, and is well known for his roles in "Schindler's List," the "Star Wars" series, "Taken," "The A-Team," and many other films.

Martin Sheen, whose given Christian name is Ramón Antonio Gerardo Estévez (his sons are Emilio Estevez and Charlie Sheen), chose his screen name in honor of Venerable Fulton J. Sheen.  One of his most recent notable projects was to star in his son Emilio's movie, "The Way," a film about a man's mission to complete his deceased son's camino, the Way Of St. James pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela, Spain.  It's worth watching, but have a box of tissues ready!

Maybe there's hope for Hollywood after all!  Pray for these and the small handful of other movie stars who remain true to their Faith and the mission of pro-life, despite enormous pressures to the contrary.
