CNN to show documentary on Saint Mother Theodore Guerin
Jen Christensen travels the world for CNN. She works as a producer in the Special Investigation and Documentary Unit. And, she’s impressed by her visits to Saint Mary-of-the-Woods.
Jen has led a team that has made three trips to the motherhouse for an upcoming documentary on “CNN Presents.” The documentary will explore the process of becoming a saint in the Roman Catholic Church and will tell the story of Saint Mother Theodore Guerin. It is scheduled to be televised Sunday, March 4, at 8 p.m., 10 p.m. and 2 a.m. (EST).
In addition to visiting Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, her crew traveled to Rome to meet with the postulator who worked with the Congregation, and to Florida to meet with the recipient of a miracle healing.
Here is some of what Jen had to say about her research and work at Saint Mary-of-the-Woods:
“This is Heaven on Earth. I’ve never been to such a beautiful place, not just the land, but the spirit here is unlike any place I’ve ever been. I’ve been very fortunate to travel the world and to see the best and the worst of humanity. But, this is singular. It makes me emotional. That’s how much I really love it here.
“I am struck by the determination that had to go into this cause. It’s clear to me that this woman was a saint without the Vatican’s blessing. I am so impressed with the dogged determination with the people here who want the rest of the world to know her story,” she said. “I think the sisters here have the secret to life, the secret to happiness. I think Mother Guerin set the tone for that in all of the right ways.”
So, tune in to “CNN Presents” on March 4 to see what the story says, then think about how Saint Mother Theodore might have impact on your life.
