Storyline

Bettina Lloyd, a journalist whose career never really took off, is sent by her editor in chief to her small-town birthplace in Ohio, where the Roman Catholic church is taking serious the claims for a series of alleged medical miracles. Of course she also gets in contact again with the people from her past, such as her brother Ben, a school coach, and her father, who feels that his daughter should concentrate on starting a family to give him grandchildren, not on a career, that's for the son.

Goofs

At the emotional turning point in the church when Bettina accepts the Father's offer of help, she has him re-baptize her. Re-baptism is not permitted in the Catholic Church as it is unnecessary and would actually be a sacrilege as it calls into question the original validity of the baptism. The Church teaches that Baptism is a once-for-all sacrament that washes away original sin, gives sanctifying grace, and imparts a supernatural character upon the soul that makes a person a Christian. During the recitation of the creed at Mass we even say we "acknowledge ONE baptism for the forgiveness of sin..." See more »

A Pleasant Surprise
14 April 2019 | by littleangelikSee all my reviews

Just saw this movie. At first I thought it would be a (typical) dig against the Catholic Church, but thankfully it wasn't. In fact, I was touched to see a young woman actually be drawn back into her faith. My only criticism is that they had a scene where the main character was re-baptized, which wouldn't happen in the Catholic Church.
