'The Secret Mass Room', Catholic film on DVD

This film presents the life and mission of English Martyr and Elizabethan Catholic layman St. Swithun Wells who provided a secret Mass room in his London home for hunted Catholic priests to offer the outlawed Sacrifice of the Mass for persecuted recusant Catholics. 
The film grows in tension as infamous priest hunter Richard Topcliffe gradually descends upon the house in Gray's Inn Lane while Mass is being offered by 24 year old missionary priest St. Edmund Gennings.  It was 28 year old priest St. Polydore Plasden who stuck a bargain with Queen Elizabeth's priest hunter, promising to surrender if Mass would be allowed to finish, thus protecting the Blessed Sacrament from desecration.
Both priests were arrested, as were several laymen and women including St. Swithun Wells' wife Alice and his servants.  When St. Swithun Wells returned home to find the secret Mass room in disarray he went straight to the authorities to demand back his wife and was arrested when he boldly declared he was a Catholic and supported the priests who had been arrested in his home.
This film is a moving testimony to one of our great English Martyrs, produced in 2010 alongside two other films that accompany the drama, 'St. Edmund Gennings' and 'St. Polydore Plasden'. 
All three DVDs available on AMAZON UK, AMAZON COM and from Mary's Dowry Productions.
