About the Film:
The Greatest Miracle is a 3D animated film that celebrates the beauty and mystical nature of the Catholic Mass in a dramatic presentation that follows the lives of three strangers—Monica, a mother struggling to raise her son after the death of her husband; Chema, a father struggling to come to grips with his child's deadly diagnosis; and Cata, an elderly woman seeking peace—whose lives intersect one morning at the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. There, each person meets their guardian angel and is given the gift to see the world through spiritual eyes and take full account of their blessings. (View the film trailer here.)
