A newly released movie depicts the courageous life of the foundress of the Servants of Mary, a religious order from Madrid that cares for the sick. The life of the Spanish saint will be depicted in upcoming film screenings in Los Angeles.
The movie, “Luz de Soledad” (“Light of Solitude”), tells the story of St. María Soledad Torres y Acosta as she faces revolutions, epidemics and religious persecutions while ministering to the sick and building up her order. Pope Paul VI canonized her in 1970. Her feast day is celebrated Oct. 11.
