It’s the 1950’s, and typically men are the breadwinners and the women stay home and raise the family. For Evelyn’s husband, resentment, pride, and anger arise when the roles aren’t fulfilled. Disillusionment sets in when the self-concept is no longer maintained.
Evelyn is a miracle worker who can’t do anything but see the Christ in everyone. She consistently forgives and perceives nothing but a call for love, no matter how intense the situation. She constantly considers what is best for the whole, and in this consistent alignment of service, she finds her joy. The Spirit comes through her with humor and lightness, and she experiences the support and delight of divine providence in the form of winning prizes through jingle-writing competitions.
