St. Simon Stock and the Brown Scapular, Feast day May 16th, Carmelite friar, 13th Century England

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.

A great way to get to know the life of St. Simon Stock and the Brown Scapular is through our film on this inspiring Carmelite friar of 13th Century England.
This film combines includes quotes from Saints such as St. Therese of Lisieux about the importance of the Brown Scapular and Pope John Paul II, the importance of this Sacramental plus much more; a particularly good resource for schools, Confirmation classes, parishes and families.
The film is available worldwide on DVD through Mary's Dowry Productions.
Saint Simon Stock is one of our great English Saints and the Shrine at Ayelsford in Kent is one of the few remaining Shrines to Our Lady in England.
The history and Catholicism that shines out of St. Simon Stock's great life is in need of rediscovery one more today.  Our film about St. Simon Stock is a useful way to encounter the life of our English Saint and encourage the devotional wearing of the Brown Scapular which was given to us from Our Lady.  St. Simon Stock - pray for us!
