St. John Fisher, English Martyr, Feast day, his life in film in a Catholic DVD

Photograph of St. John Fisher preaching at Rochester taken by
Fr. Lawrence Lew OP and used with his permission in a
film of the life of St. John Fisher by Mary's Dowry Productions.
Saint John Fisher, an English Martyr, shares a feast day with St. Thomas More.
Almost everyone has seen "A Man For All Seasons" which focuses upon St. Thomas More, but the only other leading figure in Catholic Tudor England who placed God before the King was St. John Fisher, the Bishop of Rochester who was made Cardinal of England in the Tower of London.  Beginning with his early life as a young boy, we follow St. John Fisher through the Tudor Courts, his assassination attempts on his life and his writings and holy family life.

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 Saint John Fisher.
Available worldwide on DVD.  Produced in England.
