Chiara Badano DVD
“Won’t I be able to run anymore? Won’t I be able to walk anymore? Won’t I be able to practice sports anymore? All my friends… my tennis… the mountains… the beach… Mom, is it fair to die at 17?”
Filmed on location in Italy, this powerful film tells the story of Blessed Chiara Badano from her childhood to her beatification in 2010. It features interviews with her parents, friends, doctors, and the family of the young man who was miraculously healed through her intercession.
Born in 1971, Chiara was a typical teenager in many ways. Hear, in Chiara’s own words, her excitement about a simple and profound encounter with God at age 9 as well as her continued commitment to sharing her life experiences, including her illness, with her friends.
At 17, a searing pain in her shoulder revealed that Chiara had bone cancer. “The illness arrived just at the right moment because I was going in the wrong direction,” she wrote. Her friends continued to strengthen their unity with her by sharing their daily experiences of living out the Gospel. They note that Chiara didn’t talk much about God. Chiara herself said, “Talking to people about God doesn’t count for much. I have to give God to them.” Don’t miss the opportunity to experience the path of Chiara Badano and the motto she lived during her 3-year-long illness: “It’s for you, Jesus. If you want it, I want it, too.”
