| A wonderful movie for the Christmas holiday!
Last year, I came home from a twelve hour shift and found my wife watching this movie on DVD. I watched the remainder of the film with her and then the next day watched it in its entirety. I watched again this evening and guess it will be fun to watch each year. The movie is a great movie for Catholics (and others too I suppose). It tells the story of Saint Elizabeth Ann Seaton whose insístance on giving free education to the poor and needy in lieu of to only the wealthy made her dear and wise in her own time and her Charity spreader to other states. She was the widowed mother of five children after her wealthy husband died of consumption, now known a terburculosis, or TB. She went from being rich to suddenly without income and debt. While taking her ailing husband to Italy became in awe of Catholicism and used her new fairh to help children in need. She started a religious order and used love to help all children in her care. A great cast with Kate Mulgrew as Elizabeth Seaton and supporting roles played by John Forsythe and Lorne Greene, give this made for TV movie some credentials.
