REVIEW AT SIGNIS (WORLD CATHOLIC ASSOCIATION FOR COMMUNICATION)

24 October 2013

Sister Rose Pacatte on the film, “Tong’s documentary is rich in historical archival photographic and film footage, some dating back as early as 1922 when the sisters began their first mission in China. The other remarkable aspect to the film are the accounts of eight Maryknoll sisters who served for decades in China, Japan, Latin America and the U.S. Now elderly, the sisters continue to be active in all ways that they can, and their joy and peace radiates through the interviews.”
