Visible crew/equipment: When Frankie (Patricia Arquette) returns to work after receiving the hand wounds, something catches her attention and she goes to the window to look at a mysterious woman. At one point, a group of doves burst from the ground to the right of the woman (from Frankie's view). if you look directly where the dove's come from, you can see the travelling cage they are released from. if you look a little more to the side, you can see a stage hand laying on the ground, shaking the cage so the doves will come out.
Frankie is a messenger of Father Alameida's spirit (and he also suffered stigmata wounds). The spirit releases Frankie (Patricia Arquette) and then Andrew Kiernan (Gabriel Byrne) goes to the church in Brazil and discovers the Gospel of Thomas (that the three priests were translating)hidden beneath the church floor. In the DVD alternate ending, Frankie dies.
Marion Petrocell: The Kingdom of God is inside you, and all around you, not in buildings of wood and stone. Split a piece of wood and I am there; lift a stone and you will find me.
Trivia: After Frankie tears up the apartment, possessed by the priest, she goes to the bed and levitates in a cruciform position. During this scene, there is a quick, sweeping shot of the wall and, if you watch it in slow motion, you can see a wall of boxes of Ritz crackers. This is either an obvious endorsement or some kind of inside joke.
Question: What is the meaning of the scene with the hooded blond woman throwing her child in the street? Frankie sees her, starts yelling, and the scene creates a mysterious mood, but I don't really see any connection to the plot.
