Bishop Barron Presents Shia LaBeouf — Padre Pio and the Friars

Bishop Robert Barron

August 25, 2022


Friends, in the latest “Bishop Barron Presents,” I’m delighted to be joined by Shia LaBeouf, the actor famous for “Transformers,” “Honey Boy,” and “The Peanut Butter Falcon,” among other films.

His most recent role is as the young Padre Pio in a new biopic on the great saint. In our conversation, we discuss:

  • Method acting
  • Prayer
  • Suffering
  • The ego
  • The traditional Latin Mass
  • Padre Pio
  • Shia’s time with the Capuchin friars
  • And more
