The huge success of ‘Mother Teresa: No Greater Love’ has led the Knights of Columbus to bring it back to theaters in November.
A two-night theatrical release of the latest documentary produced by the Knights of Columbus, Mother Teresa: No more lovewas a great success. Fathom Events reports that the film on the life and work of the Saint founder of the Missionaries of Charity crossed $1.2 million at the box office.. This feat is especially impressive since the premiere didn’t even happen over the weekend.
Supreme Knight Patrick Kelly, who served as the film’s executive producer, praised its popularity and announced that the film’s gross “Donations will be made to charitable causes and efforts to further Mother Teresa’s legacy.”Kelly said in a press release:
“When Mother Teresa fed the hungry or held someone’s hand as they died, she treated them as if she were the most important person in her life, Jesus Christ himself.” It is our hope that this film will inspire a new generation to continue his mission and support the order he established.
The film was so well received that now Fathom Events has announced that the documentary will return to theaters on a second day in November, along with the release of a Spanish language edition. Mother Teresa: No more lovereturns to the silver screen for one night only in US, UK and Canadian theaters on November 2. Then, on November 7, US theaters will run a Spanish version. A list of participating theaters can be found at Fathom Events.
