AMU Hosts Premiere of New Mother Teresa Documentary 

On Sunday, September 25, 2022, Ave Maria University hosted the world premiere of David Naglieri’s new movie, Mother Teresa: No Greater Love. The film is a biography about the beautiful life of St. Mother Teresa, 25 years after her death in 1997. Several of the film’s creators were in attendance, including producer Jim Wahlberg, as well as many sisters from the Missionaries of Charity.

The event started at 5:00 p.m. in the Thomas and Selby Prince Building with tours around AMU’s Mother Teresa Museum, followed by a reception with food and drinks for all the attendees. Wahlberg gave some opening remarks about the film before the showing at 6:30 p.m. in the O’Bryan Performance Hall.

“It is a great feeling to know that Mother Teresa is still loved and known by many. Whenever we come here, we always feel our Blessed Mother and Mother [Teresa]’s presence.”
Sister Ajay, M.C., Sister Superior in Miami, Florida

The O’Bryan Performance Hall was filled with students, staff, Ave Maria residents, and several other friends of the University. All were deeply moved by the tribute to Mother, which featured interviews from Catholic leaders such as Bishop Robert Barron and AMU’s second President, Jim Towey.

“The movie helped me remember that we need to be thankful for all that we have here in America. It is impressive and truly inspiring to see how Mother Teresa recognized everyone’s dignity by seeing Jesus in them; it makes me want to take advantage of all the service opportunities offered here at the University.”
Juan Ignacio Garcia, AMU Student (’25)

The premiere was organized by AMU’s Mother Teresa Project, which holds multiple service activities for students to participate in, such as annual international and domestic mission trips.

Ave Maria’s Mother Teresa Museum is one of just two Mother Teresa museums in the world, hosting original relics and artifacts from Mother’s life, donated by the Missionaries of Charity. The museum is open to the public Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturdays.

If you have any questions or would like to get involved in future service activities with the Mother Teresa Project, please contact program director James Stella.
