Cabrini in theaters March 8th - Movie Review

I had the pleasure of watching Cabrini as a pre-screen and I am proud to share this film with you! This story is based on the REAL Francesca Cabrini who was canonized by Pope Paul XII in 1946, becoming the first American citizen  to be named saint. Cabrini became the Saint of Immigrants. This film will keep you captivated for the entire, almost 2 hours and 20 minutes. 

With a dose of woman power, determination and heart with such intensity Cabrini’s story focuses on helping the poor and, in particular, Italian immigrants that eventually morphs into supporting all immigrants from all over the world. Then, suddenly, it is about any poor and underprivileged human being finding needs for their health, shelter and education. Over the course of 34 years she established an astonishing 67 hospitals, orphanages, and schools. Her energy was fueled by an intense focus on serving Jesus in whatever he asked of her and her legacy still stands today.

Full synopsis of Cabrini:

From Alejandro Monteverde, award-winning director of , comes the powerful epic of Francesca Cabrini, an Italian immigrant who arrives in New York City in 1889 and is greeted by disease, crime, and impoverished children. Cabrini sets off on a daring mission to convince the hostile mayor to secure housing and healthcare for society’s most vulnerable. With broken English and poor health, Cabrini uses her entrepreneurial mind to build an empire of hope unlike anything the world had ever seen.

The idea of a woman who has to overcome such difficulties and prove that she has the power to rise above it all, really makes me interested to see how she does it! I feel that the inspiration of watching this movie will provide the motivation my family and I can believe that anything can be possible.


I had not heard of this movie before but I so want to see it now. I love movies that are faith based.
