Les Miserables

Jan 15, 2013

One of the video clips I used last week at Heart’s Aflame was the bishop’s forgiveness scene taken from an old movie version of Victor Hugo‘s great book “Les Miserables.”  The book is considered to be perhaps the greatest writing of the nineteenth century.

A number of my friends have seen the new movie (released just a couple of week’s ago).  It may be a while before it makes it to Cheviot!

Fr. Robert Barron has uploaded this reflection on the book to help those who see the new movie to appreciate the work.
