This is so powerful!
Knights of Columbus Supreme Knight Patrick E. Kelly, along with the Missionaries of Charity, produced an incredible new documentary about the life of St. Mother Teresa of Calcutta.
According to the documentary’s description, producers captured the film on five continents. It “features unprecedented access to both institutional archives and the apostolates of the Missionaries of Charity…”
“This extraordinary film reveals not just who Mother Teresa was, but how her singular vision to serve Christ in the poor continues to be realized through the Missionaries of Charity today.
“This is far more than a documentary film. It is at once a soaring tribute to a spiritual icon, a powerful witness of authentic Christian charity, and a guidepost for all who seek hope in our turbulent times.”
Here’s the trailer below:
Executive producer Patrick Kelly presented a copy of the film to Pope Francis during his Aug. 31 Wednesday Audience. The Holy Father then expressed his support for the film in a statement.
“Thank you for all the efforts made to capture the life of this saint whose life and testimony have borne much fruit,” Pope Francis said. He added that he hopes “…the documentary will do much good to all those who watch it and arouse the desire for holiness.”

The documentary also premiered at the Vatican and Rome between Aug. 29-Sept. 1. Those present included Kelly, the Missionaries of Charity, and ‘The Chosen’ star, Jonathan Roumie. The film will premiere in the United States at the Saint John Paul II National Shrine in Washington, D.C. on Sept. 11.
