Friars Petition Mel Gibson to Make Francis Film

If he did it, something tells me it wouldn't be anything like "Brother Sun, Sister Moon"...

Father Groeschel's community...

From BBC NEWS | Entertainment | Franciscan friars petition Gibson:

"The Franciscan Friars of the Renewal have posted a letter to Gibson on their website, along with an online petition.

It praises the director for his 'work of sacred art' and asks him 'to produce a sequel about a man many acclaim to be the Church's greatest saint'.

St Francis is the patron saint of animals and the environment.
In the letter to Gibson, the friars say they believe the film, if made, 'would show the world what happens when a person totally and unequivocally responds to the Passion of the Christ.'

It goes on to suggest Gibson could call the film Man of the Passion. "
