MY COUSIN THE SAINT
A Search for Faith, Family, and Miracles
by Justin Calanoso

The First Miracle


This video was shot in Chorio, a small village in the southern Aspromonte in Calabria. The saint and his cousin, Carmelo Catanoso, who was my grandfather, were both born there. My Uncle Tony is the star of this story. He calls it The First Miracle. It is, without doubt, one of my favorite stories in the book, taking place as it does during World War II — in Chorio. Sticklers should note: this miracle was not vetted by the pope’s Congregation for the Causes of Saints.

This video was shot and produced by UNC-Greensboro film professor Michael Frierson in Italy last March.
