Saint Alexander Briant - English Martyr - NEW DVD release from Mary's Dowry Productions.
A documentary about St. Alexander Briant, a young Elizabethan priest, who was executed at Tyburn Gallows with St. Edmund Campion and St. Ralph Sherwin. 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 was graced with the invsible stigmata during his racking due to his compassion and unsight into Jesus' sufferings, carved a little Cross and wrote a poignant and insightful letter before his execution. A bold and reverent witness to the Catholic Faith his story is presented in this reflective and detailed half an hour documentary. We have provided some nice imagery of the Martyr alsongside sacred art and historical paintings/maps to give a very interesting, peaceful and moving look at his little known but very important life, mission and martyrdom.
