When a young woman becomes afflicted by stigmata, a priest is sent to investigate her case, which may have severe ramifications for his faith and for the Catholic Church itself.
The "Aramaic" Frankie writes on the wall, is actually ancient Hebrew, because Rupert Wainwright thought looked more intriguing.
How is your faith these days, Father?
Frankie: How is your faith these days?
The priest stated to Frankie that she was the same age as St. Francis when he received the stigmata, 23. In fact, St. Francis was 42 years old when he received the stimata.
It is important to note that in the director's alternate ending, Frankie suffers the fifth wound of Christ (or stigmata) -- the piercing of the side. Earlier in the movie, Father Kiernan suggests that only the most pious receive the wounds of Christ and that the more wounds they receive, the more pious they are. He also says that no one has ever received all 5.
