The film on the life of St. Thèrése of Lisieux ("the little flower") is scheduled to be released this October. According to Zenit.Org, Vatican officials were provided with an advance screening of the film this past weekend. Commenting on Younce's performance, Carmelite priest and Thèrése expert Father Donald Kinney stated that, " Thèrése is truly in that film, her presence is in that film." (According to Zenit the film also received a standing ovation from bishops and journalists in Dallas).

The film's director, Leonardo Defilippis, in a recent interview, expressed his confidence that Thèrése could very well be a "renaissance in the production of high-quality Catholic films".

Christine from Christus Victor says that "Hollywood is keeping an eye on the number of hits the official website receives to determine how many theaters it will open in this Fall." To that end, please note the banner for St. Thèrése: The Movie on the top left of the page, and click at least once every single time you visit this blog . . . Hollywood's watching.
