Faith of Our Fathers
Description:The “Faith of our Fathers” film tells the story of a Catholic Priest hiding in fear of the austere laws of the Penal times in Ireland, and the whole community’s efforts to shelter him as he ministers through the hedge schools and Mass Rock to strengthen the faith of the people. The film juxtaposes the strong and unyielding faith of Irish people during Penal times, compared to the trend towards indifference in modern day. This film was made entirely from donations.

Bravery Under Fire
This original EWTN docudrama presents the life and ministry of Father Willie Doyle, S.J., an Irish Jesuit priest who was killed in action during World War I. Bravery Under Fire tells the story of Fr Willie Doyle SJ. Fr Doyle was an Irish Catholic Jesuit, who enlisted as a Chaplain in the British Army in 1915 because he wanted to be on the battlefield with soldiers when they most needed a priest. During the war he would run countless times into “no man’s land” to drag fellow soldiers to safety or lie with them while giving them the last rites.
In August 1879, the tiny Irish village of Knock witnessed a spectacular apparition. Through pelting rain, luminous images of the Virgin Mary, Saint Joseph and John the Evangelist shone like a beacon. For an Irish people enduring a season of suffering and despair, this was a much-needed sign of hope, promising mercy, the Blessed Sacrament and the powerful intercession of the saints. Revisit the events at Knock with leading experts providing theological context on what they mean for Catholics today.
Speak of the Devil
The Prodigal Son is one of our most well-known Bible stories, and the message it communicates is profound. The father patiently allows his son to make his own choices, but also awaits him with open arms and unconditional love when he comes back home. This cinematic retelling is interwoven with insightful interviews and teaches us the importance of being battle-ready in the spiritual war we all face.
