Vatican City (Agenzia Fides) - On July 22, 1799, the foundress of the Pontifical Society for the Propagation of the Faith (POPF) was born in Lyon, beatified on May 22 in her hometown. The short film "Look from above", produced by POPF with the collaboration of Agenzia Fides on the occasion of this jubilee year, was dedicated to her and to her ever timely message (see Fides, May 3, 2022). The short film, currently available in English, Italian, French and Spanish, presents the story and experience of faith of Pauline Jaricot in the form of a short film and docufilm, narrated through the eyes and life of Claire, a young woman of our time. Conceived as an evangelization tool, it was made available to the National Directions of the Pontifical Mission Societies (PMS) which are spreading it and in some cases are translating it into their own languages with subtitles and even dubbed versions. Among the filming locations, in addition to places in Lyon where Jaricot lived her experience of faith, there is also Rustrel, a municipality located in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d'Azur region, known for being the "Colorado of Provence", where Pauline Jaricot had founded the factory of Notre Dame des Anges. The woman who received the miracle of healing through the intercession of Pauline Jaricot also appears in the final scenes of the short film: Mayline Tran, a three-year-old girl at the time. The Tran family participated in the final phase of the project, sharing its spirit, sharing their experience. (EG) (Agenzia Fides, 22/7/2022)
