A trial of faith unfolds at the apex of World War I, when secrets are revealed to three courageous Portuguese children through a series of apparitions, while their doubting family and aggressive anti-Christian government officials try to silence them from sharing these messages that will change the world. This harrowing story shows that the faith of a mustard seed can move mountains and inspire a whole nation and eventually the world to come to support the three little shepherds. The message is one of belief, faith and ultimately Peace as God’s promise.
The official authorized film of Mother Teresa that focuses on Mother Teresa’s early days in Calcutta and her struggle to create a worldwide movement to help the poorest of the poor. The inspiring and compelling motion picture provides insights into the character and personality of this humble woman, who is arguably the most famous, most revered and most admired woman in the world during the past serveral decades. Mother Teresa was a living Saint for the love she gave in doing the work she did – and she was like us in so many, many ways. She stands as a symbol of what’s best in us – and how faith transforms.
