Da Vinci Sma Vinci --
Although Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone said that The Da Vinci Code should not be read, Monsignor Jose Maria Pinheiro, soon to be bishop of Sao Paolo, has more faith in Catholic readers' ability to be prudent when reading fiction.

I've read it. It was mindless fun. The literary equivalent of the movie Independence Day. The villain was a bit obvious. The art history and theology inaccurate. But it's fiction. As long as people don't actually believe the Mary Magadalene/Holy Grail stuff, I see no harm.
