Father Barron on "Angels and Demons"


A very good review. Just one quibble: I think it is disputed that Copernicus was himself a priest, although he had a very close relationship with the Catholic Church throughout his life. I have read some references that indicate that he might have been a Third Order Dominican.

There was 1939 or 1940 movie called Thunder Rock that had the ghost of a physician who gave women in childbirth anesthesia. This was supposed to have happened in 1840's or 1850's and was opposed by the church.

A search of the internet showed that this was not the case. You can read more about the movie here: http://web.mac.com/tehart/Jurassic_Rants/Blog/Entries/2008/3/11_Thunder_Rock.html
