Here’s the latest from the crossroads of faith, media & culture: 10/10/22

The beat goes on. I was away on some personal business for the least two weeks. Here are are some of the notable Faith, Media & Culture items that filled my inbox.

Mother Teresa: No Greater Love box office tops $1.2M. The documentary on the remarkable life of Mother Teresa of Calcutta and the heroic work of the religious order she founded, the Missionaries of Charity was a U.S. box office hit during its two-night-only release (Oct. 3 and 4), earning over $1.2 million. Patrick Kelly, Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus and an executive producer of the film, also announced that the Knights would allocate all its revenue from ticket sales for charitable purposes and efforts to advance the legacy of Mother Teresa.

Public support for the film has been so great that Fathom Events has added new dates in the U.S., U.K. and Canada on Nov. 2, and a Spanish-dubbed version in the U.S. on Nov. 7. For info on theater locations and showtimes click here.

Fox Nation will offer its subscribers a new original Christmas film entitled Christmas at The Greenbrier. Premiering on Thursday, November 24th, the second feature film from the streamer will be based at The Greenbrier, the iconic luxury resort in West Virginia. The platform will also expand its library of holiday content in celebration of the upcoming Christmas season with several additional feature-length acquisitions.

In making the announcement, Fox Nation President Jason Klarman said “We are ecstatic to mark the upcoming holiday season with the release of our second original film and provide our subscribers with a top-tier offering in a genre we know they love. The Greenbrier was an ideal setting to bring this movie to life and we’re incredibly proud of the product.”

Available on Thanksgiving, the 2022 film will feature General Hospital castmates Alicia Leigh Willis and Josh Murray as a widowed mother and a former professional football player who dated previously but ended their relationship when he turned pro. The pair unexpectedly reunite during a stay at The Greenbrier.

Also coming to Fox Nation this Christmas season is The Wise Men Who Found Christmas (dropping 12/16). The special, based on the new book by  New York Times bestselling author and Fox News contributor Raymond Arroyo, tells the true story of history’s most famous star followers.
Note: My interview with the author will run here on Wednesday.
