WATCH: 'Dumb and Dumber' director chats with a Jesuit

What does the guy responsible for some of the most blush-inducing comedy scenes over the past 20 years and a Jesuit priest have in common? More than you'd think. The IN Network's Jesuit Fr. Radmar Jao sat down with director Peter Farrelly ("Dumb and Dumber," "There's Something About Mary") to talk about something he probably won't be discussing this week while promoting "Dumb and Dumber To": his spirituality. Their conversation covers prayer, why Farrelly refuses to own a cell phone, and the surprising similarities between Ignatian retreats and driving thousands of miles alone. Don't miss this short preview now, and check back to NCR on Friday for the full interview, where they'll also discuss how Farrelly, raised Catholic, went from seeing God like "Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny" to something undeniably real that he couldn't ignore.
