* "Spectacularly beautiful images.  Sister Lou is an icon.  Critically important messages about women's empowerment and the beauty of the Catholic Church."     *     "A profound story told!  Amazing!   A voice heard!  Moving forward slowly but steadily!  It's a movement!"     *     "Beautifully edited to go smoothly from the personal to the general to give a rounded picture that was totally positive and hopeful."     *     "Clearly a continuous journey.  Quite an evolution of women leaders."     *     "It would be helpful to you to learn how other Christian groups have dealt with women on leadership.  Many Protestant denominations have women clergy such as Presbyterian."     *     I liked the vines climbing the church.  Very Artistic, symbolic.  Love it."     *     "Excellent"     *     "Love it"     *     "A Calling . . . a very interesting story of a "today topic", told very well.  Bravo!"     *     "We're all called to find our place to contribute."     *     "Thank you so very much for telling this beautiful story.  Very inspirational & moving."     *     "Well done"     *     "Thank you"     *     "The Catholic Church has to ordain women!  Good job!  Great film."     *     "Such an amazing film!!"     *     "A must see film for females of all ages."     *     "Very well done.  I am one hoping for change."     *     "Beautiful picture of different calls.  Wonderful example of stay at home moms, sisters and congregants.  Beautiful photography."     *     Well done.  An eye opener and I'm happy to hear you're going national.  People "need" to see it!."     *     "ONE WORD:  AWESOME!"     *     "I thought the content was so true & real.  Very meaningful.  Thank you!"     *     I really enjoyed the film!  One of the scenes that was a little problematic for me was the coloring scene -- it was hard for me to follow because the boy's drawing was very light.  I think everything was beautifully woven together.  Always a pleasure!"     *     "Phenomenal!  I love it!"     *     "Awesome . . . opened my eyes to a number of things -- all positive."     *     "Because St. Lucy's has the equality we see, it was surprising to realize that makes our parish exceptional.  It was definately an eye opener!"     *     "I just saw your film at St. Lucy's and we left right after, but I just wanted to tell you that it was phenomenal. You did a fantastic job telling such an important and timely story. I hope you are able to do many more showings because I think everyone should see it. Thank you for telling such a great story... I really think this could be a big film it's better than many of big studio documentaries I have seen. Also thank you for adding my grandmother's name at the end myself and my aunt, who I was there with, were very surprised and touched. My whole family appreciates it."     *       "Fantastic job!! What we loved: the story being told entirely by those who were interviewed, the B-roll of the old Albany church, the B-roll of the events and march in Albany -- I felt like I was there. Sara also noted how perfectly and powerfully the music reinforces the story being told. A powerful and enlightening story, illustrated and colored-in by all of the good in our community."    *    " What a wonderful evening, viewing the movie.  It was amazing.  Everyone's words and the way they expressed them was so touching.  Great job!"     *     "I saw the premier of the film last Wednesday and it was amazing.  It was so moving to hear the reasons and experiences that led people to their calling, both religious and laity.   A must see."
