I was watching a documentaire on tv, concerning Jeanne d'Arc...
I am not sure, but I think that the bishop who condemned Jeanne, was later named "saint" ;so was Jeanne d'Arc(whom I love and admire) of course...
I wonder if Catholic Church has recognised that She has done many faults..
And what about this bishop?If my information is true, has he still the title of saintity?

The bishop who helped in the condemnation of Joan was Pierre (or Peter) Cauchon the Bishop of Beauvais and "strong ally of the English".  Joan was captured by the Burgundians and given to the English who were busy fighting Charles of France and his forces.  He has never been declared a saint and the on-line RC dictionary "New Advent" says this:

"Pierre Cauchon, bishop of Beauvais and strong ally of the English, tricked her into an admission of guilt.." and that he was guilty of "personal corruption".

JPII certainly made his fair share of official apologies for the past actions of the Catholic Church.

We have seen a few "documentary" styled presentations, by the Discovery and History Channels that we have been told are on cable tv, claiming to present historical facts about Christianity.    They were very inaccurate and came to a conclusion that was slanted to be anti-religion.

There are many so called films about the "faith"  that are presented as truth,  but it is always important to find out who the film makers are and what their perspective or motive is.

It has been our experience that you can really trust EWTN as far as simple Catholic documentaries and presentations, about the saints etc.  And the other major Christian networks have reliable historical presentations about the Bible and archeology,  (as long as there is no political motive behind it).

I know very little about these things, but someone once said, when it comes to history books and their accuracy, etc.,  it depends on who wrote the book.   So it is always good to do a little research and find out if what was presented is indeed an accurate account. 

But I have noticed that if I listen very carefully that is with my heart, truth carries its own anointing, and along with that, peace. 

Something that is being falsely represented usually creates a sense of anxiety and doesn't ring true.

I pray not only for them, but also for those who will believe in Me through their word, so that they may all be one, as You, Father are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in us, that the world may believe that You sent Me.
