The Greatest Miracle (2011), directed by Bruce Morris (Curious George, Finding Nemo, Hercules, Pocahontas, The Little Mermaid), will be featured on the third day of the official conference in Madrid. This Dos Corazones Films production is scheduled to release in the United States this October and is a contemporary story of hope, inspiration and faith.
The film follows three Catholics who have each reached a period of crisis. Their three stories intertwine when each of the characters feel a great need to be in the church. What they do not know, is that their lives are about to change forever. With the help of guardian angels, these characters will witness the true meaning of Mass and the supernatural forces behind Christ’s sacrifice to the altar – a constant struggle between good and evil ending in the triumphant victory of faith.
World Youth Day is a yearly celebration that was started by Pope John Paul II as a way to inspire the young and encourage them to live the teachings of Christ. Youths from many nations around the globe come together, celebrating the universality of and diversity within the Catholic Church. The conference attracts all denominations to unite as one in the walk of faith.
This year, World Youth Day will offer youth a chance to participate in mass with the host of the conference, Cardinal Rouco of Madrid, as well as attend a variety of teaching sessions held across the city and a closing mass led by Pope Benedict XVI.
During the week leading up to the final mass at World Youth Day, the youth gather in catechesis to learn the teachings of the faith and celebrate in the many offered festivities. Conference attendees have the opportunity to view Christian films, listen to inspirational speakers and teachers and connect with thousands of other young devout Christians.
After the screening, World Youth Day participants will be given the exclusive opportunity to experience a live orchestra performance at the Luchana Street open-air concert venue, where a suite of music from The Greatest Miracle will play in conjunction with a trailer of the film. This will highlight the film’s spectacular soundtrack composed by Mark McKenzie (The Tale of Despereaux, Ice Age: The Meltdown, Spider-Man 1&2, Stuart Little 1&2).
