    Actor Jim Caviezel, his voice sometimes cracking with emotion, spoke of being "rejected in my own industry," the problems of his friend Mel Gibson and his son's cancer in an appearance Saturday night at First Baptist Church of Orlando. The star of "The Passion of the Christ," whom First Baptist pastor David Uth described as "more passionate about God" than anyone he's ever met, was in town to give witness to his faith, to urge others to share it and to sell a new all-star audio production of the Bible that he has produced. During a 20-minute talk, Caviezel spoke...

    im Caviezel, the star of the blockbuster film The Passion of the Christ, told an interviewer that he had been challenged by a friend who was not pro-life to live up to his professed pro-life convictions and adopt a disabled child. The friend told Caviezel that if he did that, then he would change to the pro-life position. When Caviezel and his wife, Kerri, went to China to adopt not one, but eventually two orphans suffering from brain tumours, the friend reneged on the deal. Caviezel, however, said, "It didn't matter to me because the joy that we had from...

    Where is 'Jesus' these days? The answer is thus: He's at the University of Notre Dame studying Spanish. "I'm in the process of finally getting my college degree," said actor Jim Caviezel, whose astonishing portrayal of Christ in Mel Gibson's remarkable "The Passion of the Christ" catapulted him to stardom. "I'm now too old to be Jesus," chuckled Caviezel, 37, who just wrapped shooting "Deja Vu" with Denzel Washington in New Orleans. "You can now call me Moses." I caught Caviezel via cell phone as he scurried across the campus of his dreams last Friday. "It's like home here," he...

    At the center of the controversy surrounding ‘The Passion of the Christ’ stands a peaceful man with a passion for acting, and for his Catholic faith. Jim Caviezel, 34, portrayed Jesus Christ in the blockbuster film directed by Mel Gibson. He was in the Eternal City with his family last weekend, to seek the blessing of the Holy Father. Playing such a role was not something Jim took lightly, but, like acting in general, is something he felt a ‘vocation’ to do. To be in the film, he said, was a "real spiritual experience." Invited by Father Thomas Williams, of...
