5. Father Damien: The Leper Priest (1980) I must have been a freshmen in high school when I saw this made for TV movie starring Ken Howard who I knew best as the coach from White Shadow. I was so moved by the dedication of the "leper priest" that I immediately researched leprosy and vowed to help find a cure. While I obviously did not do that, I was touched by the film and learned the great lengths that men and women would go to serve God and their fellow man.
4. St. John Bosco: Mission to Love (2007) While the DVD was not released until about five years ago, the movie was regularly shown on EWTN in one hour parts. Shortly after coming back to the Church, I caught this movie one night when I couldn't sleep. I was moved by Don Bosco's complete trust in God. Furthermore, he was dedicated to the mission God gave him to accomplish - serving the youth. I learned that Bosco was the patron of school children and that he formed the Order of the Salesians. When I was in the Army, my mother used to send me small prayer books written by the Salesians.
Teresa de Jesus (1984) This movie was made as a mini-series for Spanish television. Like the Bosco movie it appears on ETWN regularly, especially close to the feast day of St. Teresa of Avila. This is a beautifully made movie and quite accurate in its portrayal of the saint's life. This movie got me more interested in the studying the life of St. Teresa. As a result, I was introduced to her great work, The Interior Castle, on prayer and her devotion to St. Joseph.
