St. Edmund Campion's friend at Tyburn Gallows, St. Alexander Briant's life explored in a new documentary, Mary's Dowry

In 2007 Mary's Dowry Productions created a new form of film media in which to present the lives of the Saints on DVD. We invite you to watch our film prayerfully and quietly and to engage your spiritual senses. Watch with your spiritual eye, listen with your spiritual ear. Mary's Dowry Productions loves to recreate key moments, silently and with no dialogue, from a Saint's life, using historical costume and beautiful backdrops. Original contemplative music runs beneath a detailed narrative that seeks to engage the viewer with the Saint. Our films offer a window into the life of each Saint.

We invite you to take a journey with Saint Alexander Briant - English Martyr.
He was born in Somerset, studied under Fr. Robert Persons, was ordained a Catholic priest and returned to England on the English Mission.  His capture and torture give beautiful insights into the Passion of Christ - he carved a little Cross and wrote a poignant and insightful letter before his execution. 

A reverent witness to the Catholic Faith his story is presented in this new documentary.
The film is available now worldwide on DVD (all formats) from
