St. Edmund Campion: A Hero Returns
Although he defended the Catholic Faith in Elizabethan England with outstanding writings that captured many audiences including the most powerful of the courts, St. Edmund Campion was a man of intense faith, prayer and hope.  From his early life he sought the Truth, left his high position as Queen Elizabeth I's favourite, travelled Europe and returned to England to bring the Mass  to the people in a hostile environment. his prayer, devotion and love of God shines out in his own words.

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.

Mary's Dowry Productions recreated key moments from the life of Saint Edmund Campion in order to invite the viewer of our film on his life to enter prayerfully and thoughtfully with him on his journey. An informative yet spiritual narrative runs over the visuals that we recreated, accompanied by contemplative original music especially written for the film, fusing medieval, contemporary sounds. If you are not used to viewing film in a prayerful, spiritual way, this is a fascinating experience and an encounter with Saint Edmund Campion that invited you to forget the usual style of film making and peer through a window into the heart and mind of one of our English Saints.

Saint Edmund Campion tells his own story using his own words, many of which have been taken from his brag and Ten Reasons. His spirit of prayer, joy and love of God shines through in his writings and with prayerful meditation we can encounter his spirit and mission.
