You can click the blue links above to learn more about each movie. If you find yourself moved to host your own inspiring film night, take a picture and email it to us here with the name of the movie you watched (it doesn't have to be one listed above). We may then share your photo on our social media feeds to inspire others!
Sister Victoria remembers watching her favorite inspiring film, Miracle of St. Therese, many decades ago. We were happy to discover it has been reissued and is available at Ignatius Press.
