In a time of hopelessness, the movie was an inspiration to so many.
It still is.
Everytime I watch, it fills me with the hope and love of our Blessed Mother. Many a time, as a young girl, I would pray on my knees to please let me see the Blessed Mother, as St Bernadette did.. as my sis Peg would pray fervently- "Please don't apper to me. please don't appear.."
Why aren't there more inspirational movies made out there for our children- and us to watch and be inspired by???
