Philomena, Saint - DVD - available from Mary's Dowry Productions - a powerful and absorbing look at this wonderful Grecian princess, Saint and early Martyr.
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.
St. Philomena tells her story in this new film about her life which also includes a look at the history of devotion to her, the finding of her relics, her great devotees including Saints and Popes, her role as Protectress of the Living Rosary Association and how powerful she is with God. With many beautiful and relevant works of art, footage of nature, a costumed visual of St. Philomena, photographs of her imagery, narrative and an original score this is a detailed, devotional, contemplative and simple presentation especially for those who have never encountered her.
