    As a Christian, I have a BIG issue that the Catholic church is used as THE face of Christianity. If someone want's to know God, His Son Jesus Christ, and Holy Spirit, and know how to live, then one must delve deeper. Get a basic understanding of the Old Testament (Torah), and the New Testament (Christianity). It's also important to understand how Christianity changed from those who first followed Christ to the numerous denominations today. Not all Christianity is created equal. If you want to know if someone truly is a follower of Jesus Christ, check their actions against what He taught. Not that there are any perfect Christians - I'm certainly not one. But we can't judge entire religions on the actions of flawed people. We must look to the source. To be a follower of Christ is to follow HIM, allow His Word to transform us, and allow Him to work through us to reach out to a hurting world.

      Seeing the cute little boy cry when his family left was heartbreaking. It is unfortunate in these cultures how parents can so easily trust to give up their children to be raised by people they barely even know. There have been reports of young boys in the monasteries being molested.

        This film is very faithful to the true story of Thérèse Martin of Lisieux, France, who became St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus & the Holy Face, OCD. Many of the scenes were filmed in the actual locations. Though the film is very beautiful, it moves along at a rather slow pace, resulting in the loss of many precious details. It can also be somewhat over-dramatic at times, as per director Defilippis' (plays Thérèse's father) personal style. Though it should be noted that Defilippis is a master at his one-man shows, particularly his production on "Maximilian Kolbe: Saint of Auschwitz".

          This touching film focuses on forgiveness after death. I loved how the film subtly dropped hints to the characters relations to each other while not giving anything away at first glance. This was definitely a feel good film with a glimmer of drama due to the emotional nature of death.
