DENVER, Aug. 17,
2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Mother Teresa of Calcutta is one of the most widely revered
saints in the world, and one of the greatest spiritual giants of
the 20th century. She is a powerful witness of authentic Christian
charity and a guidepost for all who seek hope in our turbulent
times. "Mother Teresa: No Greater Love" is a unique film
that reveals not just who Mother Teresa was, but how her
singular vision to serve Christ through the poor is realized to
this day, through the religious order she founded, the Missionaries
Twenty-five years after Mother Teresa's death, Fathom Events
will present an exclusive two-day only event, "Mother Teresa: No
Greater Love," in theaters Monday, Oct.

film is part of Fathom Events' "Saint Series," a curated collection
of films chronicling the lives of Catholic saints.

all of this, she was teaching us to have a heart that sees, and if
we can learn to see as she did, the world would be a radically
different and, I would say, better place."
Produced by the Knights of Columbus, filmed on five continents
and featuring unprecedented access to both institutional archives
and the apostolates of the Missionaries of Charity, "Mother
Teresa: No Greater Love" chronicles the life of Mother Teresa
and the profound spiritual and physical impact she and the
Missionaries of Charity have had — and continue to have — on
Catholics and non-Catholics alike throughout the world. The
documentary also addresses Mother Teresa's admitted periods of
spiritual darkness while serving the poorest of the poor, and her
friendship with another revered saint, Pope John Paul II.
"Mother Teresa's incredible acts of kindness changed the world,"
said Ray Nutt, CEO of Fathom Events.
"We are proud to partner with the Knights of Columbus to bring this
film to theaters nationwide and hope that it can not only shine a
light on this saint of our times but to change lives in the
