(RNS) U.S. Catholic leaders say a new film about a Catholic civil war in 1920s Mexico has important lessons for U.S. Catholics in 2012, and they're hoping "For Greater Glory" will help rally the faithful around their bid to defend "religious freedom." By Lauren Markoe.

    Graham Greene wrote about this era in his 1940 novel “The Power and the Glory” which was also made into a film known as “The Fugitive” and followed by various other screenplays.It is widely held to be Greene’s greatest book,not without some controversy particularly over the Catholic Churches’ reaction to it at the time.
