The Gospel for the Fifth Sunday of Easter sees us focus on the movie 'Black Panther' from 2018 as Fr Peter Malone MSC relates it to the day's Gospel reading.

Fifth Sunday of Easter

Black Panther (2018)

"There are a number of fights, nature of the superhero film, good versus evil - always. There's a sharing in [T’Challa's] power, in his inspiring people, that really evokes some of those themes of Jesus's last discourse."
