Can't Wait to See It.....

Fr. Nicholas has a review of La Vie en Rose, about the French singer Edith Piaf. Father recommends it, saying:

Rather unexpectyedly, St Therese of Lisieux has a constant and unseen presence in the film. As a child Piaf suffered from blindness (a result, it seems,of keratitis). The kindly prostitutes who cared for her arranged for Piaf to visit the saint's tomb to pray for a recovery. Shortly afterwards she could see again. The saint's influence continued in Piaf's life until the very end, making La Vie en Rose a powerful essay on the efficacy of prayer. Share
