The Third Miracle

Last night I saw The Third Miracle. I don’t remember who recommended it to me. It was deeply thought provoking.

It’s a story of the official process the Church goes through to acknowledge someone as a saint, which includes identifying three miracles. The process is led by a priest who deeply wants it to all be true, but who has had his faith shaken by leading this process before. Meanwhile, he must also struggle with his feelings for the daughter of the proposed saint. As always, the life of a saint is not so much about the amazing things they do, but about the way that they touch the lives of others, often long after their death.

Highly recommended. Stars Ed Wood as priest Frank Shore.
