SAINT FRANCIS OF ASSISI
A LEGACY OF FIRE AND BLOOD
His heart was on fire with such love of God that Saint Francis has been compared to the Seraphim. His love was so profound that he shed his own blood through the gift of the stigmata, bearing the Wounds of Christ in his hands, feet and side.
Our 2011 film about Saint Francis of Assisi is a good way to journey prayerful and spiritually with Saint Francis while refreshing ourselves with the details and events of his life and mission. Not all of us are called to give such a striking witness of our conversion and love of God and although Saint Francis stands out in an almost extreme way, his message is profoundly simple.
We are called to imitate him in our own unique journeys in the way that God calls each of us, and Saint Francis is a powerful guide to help us along that path daily.
Someone recently wrote to us to thank us for our style of film, saying 'I hate films about the Saints (but) this is how films should be done. Mary's Dowry, great job!'
It is true that we put a great deal of trust in filmmakers and many films can be off-putting especially when they deal with matters of our precious Faith.
Our film production style offers a personal way to encounter a Saint or English Martyr.
Saint Francis of Assisi DVD blurb:
He was "the man of poverty, the man of peace, the man who loves and protects creation." (- Pope Francis).
In this film we look at the life of Saint Francis of Assisi, probably the most popular Saint in the Catholic Church. He was an Italian Roman Catholic friar, deacon and preacher. He founded the men's Order of Friars Minor, the women’s Order of Saint Clare, the Third Order of Saint Francis and the Custody of the Holy Land and remains one of the most venerated religious figures in history, not because of his achievements but because of his life and message of simplicity, love and peace as well as his profound love for the Church, the Passion of Christ and his great example of prayer.
We journey with Saint Francis through his whole life including his conversion, his miracles, prayers, devotions and his legacy which is especially relevant today.
