Father Eric Andrews and Betty White

A new made-for-TV movie by Hallmark and a faith-based film company in time for Valentine's Day promotes “tremendous” Catholic values, a priest involved with the production said.

The president of Paulist Productions, Fr. Eric Andrews, praised the film to Catholic News Agency (CNA) for having what he called “poignant moments” where “faith and trust in God's promises are put to the test and not found wanting.”

“The Lost Valentine,” airing on CBS this Sunday, Jan. 30 at 8 Central time, features actress Jennifer Love Hewitt of Ghost Whisperer fame, as well as veteran performer and recent pop culture phenomenon Betty White.

He praised the upcoming movie as “a great story of a Catholic family whose faith and trust in God's love triumphs over loss and adversity. It's a story that can connect to a general audience, regardless of faith background.”
