The Passion of Joan

12:30 tonight on TCM.  Hope I can stay up that late...

Trouble with the embed code. If no video below, go here to view...

Cinematic inspiration, using the exact dialogue from St. Joan's trial.  Asked "Since you are sure of your salvation, you have no need of the Church? Are you in a state of grace?"  They had her set up for a confession of heresy.

Great acting, then Joan replies..."If I am, may God keep me there...if I am not, may God grant it to me!"

A Stephen moment re-enacted on film.  May God grant me the same grace in my own moment of trial.
