Letters to the Editor

Ukrainian Pope

Dear Editor: I disagree with Albert Licata’s referral (Jan. 24, Readers’ Forum) to Kirel I, starring Anthony Quinn in the movie, “Shoes of the Fisherman,” as being the “first non-Italian Pope, in this case, a Russian.”

In both his novel and the movie, Australian writer, Morris West, portrays Kirel I as the first elected Ukrainian Pope.

However, I do agree that it’s definitely a movie to be seen and also a great read.
