St. Anne Line film: Prison

Saint Anne Line (c.1563 – 27 February 1601) was an English Catholic martyr. After losing her husband she became very active in sheltering clandestine Catholic priests, which was illegal in the reign of Elizabeth I. Finally arrested, she was condemned to death and executed for harbouring a priest. Considered as a martyr by the Catholic Church she was canonized in 1970 by Pope Paul VI. Liturgically she is commemorated on 27 February.

In 2007 Mary’s Dowry productions created a new form of film media to present the lives of the saints. Mary’s Dowry Productions recreates stunning silent visuals, informative, devotional narration, and original contemplative music that touches your spirit to draw you into a spiritual encounter with the saint. Watch with your spiritual eye, listen with your spiritual ear. Our films seek to offer a window into the lives of our saints. Using your spiritual senses we invite you to shut out the world, sit prayerfully and peacefully and go on a journey of faith, history and prayer with this inspiring Elizabethan Saint.
