Great film about the Greatest Lady
3 July 2009 | by (Sierra Vista, AZ) – See all my reviews

My wife and I went to Medjugorje the year which the film, Gospa, was released. My wife had a nasty bone spur in her heel and was not able to go up Apparition Hill or Cross Mountain. We attended a healing service conducted by Fr. Jozo. Fr. Jozo lay his hands on my wife's head. Although my wife is not an overly emotional person, she felt a warmth go through her body. After that she felt no pain in her heal. A subsequent x-ray showed no trace of the bone spur.

When we returned from Medjugorje, we went to a local theater for the opening of Gospa. We were turned away from the box office. We were told that the film caught fire in the projector! We bought the film when it came out on videotape. I am glad that it is now available on DVD.

Martin Sheen captures the spirit of Fr. Jozo. Michael York is terrific as the lawyer defending Fr. Jozo.

For anyone planning to go to Medjugorje, this film would be an good way to prepare. For anyone who has been to Medjugorje, this film would be a good way to relive the experience. For anyone curious about Medjugorje, this film would be a good way to find out the place where the Greatest Lady on earth or in heaven is still appearing.
