Sedona News – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to partner with Knights of Columbus for a special premiere of “Mother Teresa: No Greater Love” on Wednesday and Thursday, April 12 and 13 at the Mary D. Fisher and Alice Gill-Sheldon Theatres.
Mother Teresa of Calcutta is one of the most widely revered saints in the world, and one of the greatest spiritual giants of the 20th century. She is a powerful witness of authentic Christian charity and a guidepost for all who seek hope in our turbulent times.
“Mother Teresa: No Greater Love” is a unique film that reveals not just who Mother Teresa was, but how her singular vision to serve Christ through the poor is realized to this day, through the religious order she founded, the Missionaries of Charity.
Produced by the Knights of Columbus, filmed on five continents and featuring unprecedented access to both institutional archives and the apostolates of the Missionaries of Charity, “Mother Teresa: No Greater Love” chronicles the life of Mother Teresa and the profound spiritual and physical impact she and the Missionaries of Charity have had — and continue to have — on Catholics and non-Catholics alike throughout the world.
The documentary also addresses Mother Teresa’s admitted periods of spiritual darkness while serving the poorest of the poor, and her friendship with another revered saint, Pope John Paul II.
“Mother Teresa taught us that there are no expendable people,” Knights of Columbus Supreme Knight Patrick E. Kelly said. “Everyone we encounter is made in the image of God. So, when she was feeding the hungry or holding the hands of someone as they lay dying, she was treating them as she would the most important person in her life, Jesus Christ himself. And, in all of this, she was teaching us to have a heart that sees, and if we can learn to see as she did, the world would be a radically different and, I would say, better place.”
A portion of every ticket purchased for this Sedona premiere of “Mother Teresa: No Greater Love” will be donated to the saint’s Missionaries of Charity.
“Mother Teresa: No Greater Love” will show at the Mary D. Fisher and Alice Gill-Sheldon Theatres on Wednesday, April 12 at 4 and 7 p.m. and Thursday, April 13 at 4 and 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $12, or $9 for Film Festival members.
