    A new movie will tell the story of four religious sisters of Mother Teresa's order who died as martyrs in Yemen.

    British and Yemeni filmmakers have announced the production of a film depicting the martyrdom of nuns murdered by the Islamic State in Aden, the capital of Yemen, on March 4, 2016. The religious were members of the Missionaries of Charity founded by Mother Teresa of Calcutta. News of the upcoming film was shared in a recent article in National Catholic Register.

    The movie will be called The Garden of Aden, which, in addition to referencing the city where the martyrdom took place, also uses wordplay to contrast this place of suffering with the garden of Eden.

    It is news to me that the capital of Yemen is not Sana'a anymore. I just looked it up and the internet says that Aden is the 'temporary capital' since 2015. Hmm. Anyway, the movie sounds very interesting and inspiring. I remember when the events it portrays were happening, so I'll be interested to see how it is portrayed.

    While we're vaguely on the subject, I think a film on the life, work, and eventual martyrdom of Sr. Leonella Sgorbati -- an Italian nun who ran a children's hospital in Somalia, and was eventually fatally shot in 2006, supposedly in reaction of Pope Benedict's infamous Regensburg lecture -- would be nice to see. Her last words were "I forgive." (She was beatified in 2018, too.)

    I thought about watching The Letters but I was worried that it was going to be hit-job on St. Teresa of Calcutta because she had what I like to call "Opinions inappropriate for Hollywood" (opposition to abortion as well as just being a Roman Catholic).

    If you say it's good, I'll check it out.
