The Passion of the Christ: a prequel

Mel Gibson’s ‘The Passion of the Christ‘ will have a prequel: ‘Mary, Mother of Christ‘. Particularly interesting, it will be shot in Marzamemi, a small locality near Pachino, in the province of Siracusa, where the undersigned remembers he went being for the first time 10 years old, leaving there a piece of the heart. Almost a Pulitzer Prize scoop for the organizators, this was announced by the film’s executive producer, Vito Bruno, at the Marzamemi Frontier Cinema – International Film Festival:

Shooting of ‘Mary mother of Christ will begin in February and March and Ben Kingsley and Julia Ormond will be in the cast. We already did surveys on Etna and we will stay in Sicily to find the most suitable locations to shoot.”

As easy to imagine, ‘Mary, Mother of Christ‘ will deal with the story of Mary from the age of eight till to the vicissitudes lived together with Saint Joseph before the birth of Jesus (it will be appropriate, as in the previous chapter, to lean to the apocryphal gospels).

According to some rumours, it seems that they have been taken into account also the Basilicata, set of The Passion, and Calabria.

One must assume that Ben Kingsley will play as St. Joseph, and Julia Ormond as the Holy Virgin.

The film, a Lionsgate production, directed by Alister Grierson, will be in theaters in 2015.

La Passione di Cristo‘ di Mel Gibson avrà un prequel e sarà ‘Maria, madre di Cristo‘. Cosa particolarmente interessante, sarà girato a Marzamemi, piccola frazione di Pachino, in provincia di Siracusa, dove il sottoscritto ricorda d’essere stato per la prima volta a dieci anni e d’avervi lasciato un pezzo di cuore. Ad annunciarlo, fornendo uno scoop da premio Pulitzer agli organizzatori,  è stato proprio il produttore esecutivo del film, Vito Bruno, al Festival internazionale del cinema di frontiera di Marzamemi:

 “Le riprese di ‘Mary mother of Christ cominceranno tra febbraio e marzo e nel cast ci saranno Ben Kingsley e Julia Ormond. Abbiamo fatto sopralluoghi sull’Etna e ci fermeremo in Sicilia per cercare le località più adatte alle riprese”.

Come intuibile, “Maria, madre di Cristo” tratterà le vicende di Maria a partire dagli otto anni, fino alle vicissitudini passate insieme a san Giuseppe prima della nascita di Gesú (sarà d’uopo, come nel precedente capitolo, appoggiarsi ai vangeli apocrifi).

Da alcune indiscrezioni, sembra che siano state prese in considerazione anche la Basilicata, set di The Passion, e la Calabria.

Si deve supporre che Ben Kingsley interpreterà san Giuseppe, Julia Ormond la santa Vergine .

La pellicola, prodotta dalla Lionsgate e diretta da Alister Grierson, sarà nelle sale nel 2015.

What to think about Jesus, Mary Magdalene, Judas?

The world of Entertainment has tried many times to answer.

The following is considered one of most original ideas:


Mary Magdalene

I started to study Mary Magdalene a few years ago. I would like to reason with you about. Gospel according to Saint Philip, found by case in the dust of the desert, contains some passes where Jesus & Mary look companions, where Jesus kissed her on the mouth, and the others disciples were envious of her. 

Somebody say that Gospel according to saint Philip is not reliable, but I found in the Acts of the apostles, those written by saint Luke, everyone of us can verify, the following pass:

                                                      “Moved away, the next day we came to Caesarea and, come into Evangelist Philip,

who was one of the Seven, stayed  there”

(Act, 21, 8)

We must suppose that Gospel according to saint Philip found in Ben Hammadi be a precise copy of the lost Greek version. I read some passes of that Gospel, sometime is hard to understand and to interpret.

Somebody say that, if people called Jesus Rabbi, it means he was married, because in Jewish tradition we can call Rabbi only a married man.

Others suppose that Jesus could be called Rabbi even not married, because  he belonged to the schism of Essens.

Mary Magdalene tradition is very old and in Occidental culture there is a lot of testimonies. What about Proust’s madeleines or the pseudonym of Jean Valjean in Hugo’s novel ‘The Miserables’?  What about Disney symbols? A part Mermaid Ariel looking at a particular paint, I discovered that there is a five petals rose in the comb of Mulan, in the 2nd episode of the saga!

What do you think about?
