“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.”

O Father, fount of every good,
we give You thanks for the wonderful
testimony of Blessed Chiara Badano.
Filled with the Holy Spirit
and guided by the radiant light of Jesus,
she believed firmly in Your infinite love,
and wished to return it with all her strength,
surrendering herself in complete trust
to Your paternal will.
We humbly beseech You
that You may also grant us
the gift to live with You and for You,
and ask You, if it be Your will,
for the grace ...
through Our Lord Jesus Christ. Amen.

Novena to God’s mercy for the intercession of Blessed Chiara Badano

Some Related Comments:

"God's response to the cultural crisis in each generation is to send us Saints. Indeed, the history of the Western World is a history of Saints. Chiara Luce is God's response to the cultural crisis of today. To a postmodern world forgetting reasons for hope, God sends his light through a teenage girl who lost everything and never lost her joy. The DVD you hold in your hands is a beautiful telling of her story."

"In today's world that seems so full of darkness comes a beautiful and humble story of a young girl's light shining brightly into the world. The simple, yet powerful, life of Chiara Luce shows our young people that Sainthood is within reach. This movie will spark conversations among people of all generations on issues of joy, love, and redemptive suffering. Watch it. Share it. Live it."
