Blessed Francisco Marto - a DVD of his life by Mary's Dowry Productions - Feast day 20th February

In 2010 Mary's Dowry Productions filmed some original prayerful scenes for a spiritual and prayerful 30 minute film especially about Blessed Francisco Marto.
Below are several screenshots from our film.
 Blessed Francisco Marto prayed many rosaries. In our film we reflect prayerfully upon Our Lady's request that we pray the rosary every day.

Blessed Francisco would pray for many hours, prostrating himself in reverence before God and repeating the prayers taught to him by the Angel of Peace

Blessed Francisco saw Our Lady of Fatima but was unable to hear what she said during the visions.

Blessed Francisco was portrayed in our film by a young boy from our parish of English Martyrs.
His portrayal is a prayerful and absorbing visual of Blessed Francisco at prayer, in thought and living the message of Our Lady of Fatima. 
 Blessed Francisco was often enraptured by the thought of the Light of God.

While he was in prison, Blessed Francisco knelt to pray the rosary. In the screenshot above he is telling the man, a fellow prisoner, to remove his hat before he prays.

Blessed Francisco spent many long hours before Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament.
He often longed to console Our Lord.
In the screenshot above we used the Blessed Sacrament chapel in our parish church for these scenes.

 Before he died, Blessed Francisco made his first confession and First Holy Communion.
He died peacefully as a young boy with a smile on his face.

Above is a screenshot from our film which shows the tomb of Blessed Francisco in Fatima.

Blessed Francisco left us a beautiful witness of prayer and love of God.
Our film is available on DVD through:
