Saint Teresa of the Andes (DVD)
This beautiful mini-series produced in Chile tells the story of the inspiring life of St. Teresa of the Andes, a young Carmelite saint who lived in the 20th century and died at the age of 19. She was canonized by Pope John Paul II in 1993.
Starring actress Pauline Urrutia as St. Teresa, this film shows Teresa as a normal young woman who was a well-rounded person with many interests, including being an excellent athlete, who had a winning personality and a profound love for God, her family and friends. She had a true contemplative spirit to match her outgoing personality, and when she entered Carmel she already had a deep spirituality and a strong prayer life. Thus she quickly ascended the heights of sanctity that was recognized by her Carmelite community and beyond. She is a great role model and witness for today's youth.
This DVD includes a 16-page Collector's Booklet on St. Teresa of the Andes by Daria Sockey and includes a special documentary on the life and message of St. Teresa with Father Christopher LaRocca, OCD.
