An American Saint
11 June 2007 | by (Austin, Texas) – See all my reviews

This is a really touching and inspirational movie. The guy was a saint, and not just because of the way he died. This film shows how truly Christian this man was: kissing and cradling AIDS patients in his arms back when health care professionals were wearing gloves and masks around them, staging peace marches through violence-torn Northern Ireland, handing out valuable gifts that he'd just been given to more needy people he encountered in the streets, and much more.

Why don't more people know about this man? Why hasn't the Vatican put his cause on the fast track to sainthood? So he wrestled with his demons...but in that sense, he's no different than any other saint. And evidently, he won these private battles, daily. America needs to be reminded that you don't have to minister to Untouchables in Calcutta to be a contemporary saint. We've got Mychal Judge, Dorothy Day, and Thomas Merton who emerged right from our own back yard. It's a shame that more people don't know about them.

This movie is on DVD, and I highly recommend it. My only frustration is that it doesn't have more archival footage of him. But why would it? He went about his virtuous business anonymously. As the movie says, "he wasn't a hero, he was just doing his job." Hopefully, they'll make a dramatized movie of his life so he'll get more exposure. John Mahoney HAS to play him.
