A great way to get to know the life of St. Simon Stock and the Brown Scapular is through our film on this inspiring Carmelite friar of 13th Century England.
This little film combines beautiful film footage of the countryside of England, especially Kent, stunning sacred art in a variety of historical paintings, a little simple silent portrayal of Saint Simon Stock in typical English settings, quotes from Saints such as St. Therese of Lisieux about the importance of the Brown Scapular and Pope John Paul II, the importance of this Sacramental plus much more; a particularly good resource for schools, Confirmation classes, parishes and families.
The film is available worldwide on DVD through Mary's Dowry Productions.
Saint Simon Stock is one of our great English Saints and the Shrine at Ayelsford in Kent is one of the few remaining Shrines to Our Lady in England.
The history and Catholicism that shines out of St. Simon Stock's great life is in need of rediscovery one more today. Our film about St. Simon Stock is a useful way to encounter the life of our English Saint and encourage the devotional wearing of the Brown Scapular which was given to us from Our Lady. St. Simon Stock - pray for us!
