Fr. Longenecker's Claim To Fame...

...Sorry, but whatever else he has done pales into insignificance beside this one: he met Mel Gibson. And talked to him. And suggested a scene for his film, The Passion of the Christ.  Like, wow!  You can read more about it HERE...

If memory serves, I think Mel gave himself an uncredited bit part. Watch the part where the soldier nails Jesus to the cross. You'd have to do a freeze frame because the moment is so brief and he's wearing a helmet and all the other accoutrements - but I think that's him.

He definitely was the hand shown that nailed Christ's hand to the cross... he did it as a symbolic thing, to show that his sins had helped to nail Christ to the cross.

Awesome film
