Two Thumbs Up From The Pope

Mel Gibson can rest easy now...

VATICAN CITY (Reuters) - Pope John Paul has seen Mel Gibson's controversial film "The Passion" about Christ's final hours and was moved by it, a Vatican source said Thursday.

He said the pope saw the film with his long-time Polish secretary, Archbishop Stanislaw Dziwisz, about 10 days ago.

The source also confirmed reports that the pope told his secretary after viewing the film: "It is as it was," meaning he considered it an authentic portrayal of Gospel accounts of the last hours in Christ's life.

I note that other than that comment, nothing about the Pontiff's reaction was released. I want to know if he then excommunicated Gibson for going to Tridentine Mass.
