The prelate was happy to see the Hollywood actor, who has fully embraced his role playing the Italian saint.
Many of us are eagerly awaiting the new movie about the much-loved Italian saint Padre Pio. In an interesting move, considering his less than saintly past, the actor Shia LaBoeuf was cast to play the Capuchin friar.
However, in true LaBoeuf style, he totally embraced the role and spent time at a Franciscan Capuchin friary based in Burlingame, California, to better appreciate the work of the friars, and even went on a pilgrimage. And while he was there, the 36-year-old met up with Bishop Robert Barron.
