The Reluctant Saint - movie

7 PM
Special Film Presentation of the 1962 movie “The Reluctant Saint” starring Maximilian Schell, Ricardo Montalban and Lea Padovan. 1h 44m.
The Reluctant Saint: Maximilian Schell stars as “the flying friar”, St. Joseph of Cupertino, in this heartwarming and amazing true story of the humble Franciscan friar who literally rose to sainthood in the impoverished village of 17th century Cupertino, Italy. Joseph’s peasant mother convinces the reluctant Abbott (Ricardo Montalban) to accept her son into the monastery and by a series of miraculous incidents, the simple but pious Joseph is ordained a priest. Yet some are convinced that it is the devil,not God, who is responsible for Joseph’s miraculous powers – until a final miracle reveals to all, his true sanctity.


I’m setting up this event with a triple purpose:
1) To inspire! ✨
2) As a fundraiser for JCA! Please be generous. 😊
...we do have a license from the publisher to present this film 👍🏻
3) To celebrate my birthday with as many people as possible!

See you there!
