'Silence' Star Liam Neeson Says He Experienced the Love of God
After filming for the persecution film, "Silence" star Liam Neeson said he experienced the beautiful and calming love of God.
In a recent interview with Patheos, Neeson said he was impacted by the Jesuit spiritual exercises he practiced in preparation for the film. He said he watched the film twice already and called his experience "a meditation on doubt, faith, [and] a serious study about belief."
"You strike up a relationship with Christ through the Gospels, so that ultimately Christ becomes your brother, someone you talk to regularly, every day, throughout the day," he said of the Jesuit meditations.
Based on the acclaimed 1966 novel by Japanese Catholic writer Shusaku Endo, "Silence" tells the story of two Portuguese Jesuit priests (Andrew Garfield and Adam Driver), who are met with great persecution when they travel to Japan to locate their mentor, Father Ferreira (Neeson), who renounced the faith under torture at the hands of the Japanese regime.
