Hi, guys —

I have just seen a movie called Stigmata and in the movie the priest asked the girl if she was Alameda inside herself.

  • Was this just a character in the movie or was there really someone back in St. Francis of Assisi's day named Alameda?

Bob replied:

Dear Daniel,

The movie Stigmata is fictional, playing loosely with Catholic themes but distorting truth for sensation. There is no factual basis for a character named Alameda, a fictional, deceased priest-translator.

It is simply fiction.

Behind this movie is a negative view of the Church, painting Her as corrupt and preventing people from knowing the truth as found in the Gospel of Thomas, which is flawed and was never accepted by the Church. The movie depicts just more Catholic bashing.
