With that title, there is little doubt as to the subject matter of this inspirational Italian biopic. La Cheduzzi plays Mother Cabrini, the Chicago-born nun who was Canonized as a saint not long before the film's July 1946 release. Using a combination of newsreel footage and re-enactments, the film explains how and why the Vatican finally determined that Mother Cabrini's good works were finally classified as miracles. The film concludes with an inventory of the schools, hospitals and charitable institutions named for the Blessed Mother (the soon-to-be infamous Cabrini Green housing projects are also shown in their pre-high-rise state). Rather amateurishly filmed, Life and Miracles of Blessed Mother Cabrini benefits from the professionalism of its English-language narrator, Father Cletus McCarthy.
