Indian Christian History, Top Movies/TV
Juliet Stevenson performs Mother Teresa with her humble, gently loving spirit in this profound movie. She is most concerned with offering care, comfort to the masses who are starving, sick, dying. She shows courage, focus, sacrificial unconditional love despite much resistance. In her commitment to prayer, following her Lord’s leading in all, and love for all, which includes her enemies and those who reject her faith, she is an incarnate example of what the Bible describes as pure religion.
This film is based on the powerful true story of Graham Staines, a missionary in India. He serves the leper population in India. With his sons, he meets an unexpected, tragic fate that his wife handles with great Christian courage, faith, and dignity. The story is told through the eyes of a fictional young journalist who goes undercover intending to expose Staines as illegally proselytizing leprosy patients. However, the journalist finds a man who has given himself completely, unselfishly.
