Saint Anne Line and the Mass - the English Martyrs and the Mass (FILM TRAILER)


Shining out from among many of our English Martyrs is one of three women who were canonized in 1970 as part of the group of Saints known as 'The 40 Martyrs of England and Wales'. Her name was Anne Line and she was a young Elizabethan Catholic woman who converted to the persecuted Church from Calvinism.

As a member of the outlawed Catholic Church in England, Saint Anne, along with her brother and friend, Roger Line, worked for the Catholic cause. She and Roger soon married but shortly after Roger was arrested with Anne's brother and their priest friend. Roger was sent into exile where he soon died, leaving young Saint Anne a widow.

The great missionary priest Father John Gerard gave Saint Anne Line as mission - to care for safe houses throughout England, where priests who returned to England upon secret, dangerous missions bringing the outlawed Mass and Sacraments to the people, would find safety and shelter.

Saint Anne Line was deeply united to Christ and offered her sufferings, including frequent migraines, in sacrifice for the Catholic cause in England and for the conversion of souls. She was eventually arrested during a secret Mass, imprisoned, questioned, hung up by her wrists for ten days in a cell, but refused to deny the Catholic Faith, the authority of the Pope, the Petrine ministry or repent from sheltering outlawed priests.

Saint Anne Line joyfully gave her life for the Catholic Faith in England at the triple Tyburn gallows.
Her story is available on DVD from Mary's Dowry Productions worldwide in all region formats HERE as well as Instant Digital Download from our website to watch NOW.


The Sacred Heart of Jesus in England and throughout the whole world


Saint Claude de la Colombiere and the Sacred Heart in England:

It was saint Margaret Mary’s confessor, saint Claude de la Colombiere, who was specifically chosen by Jesus to take the devotion of the sacred heart direct from Paray-le-Monial to England in 1678. Saint Claude was a French Jesuit priest, confessor to saint Margaret Mary and advisory to the saint as she received the great revelations of the sacred heart of Jesus for the world. Providence sent saint Claude to St James’ palace in London to be preacher to the Duchess of York, Mary of Modena, the devout Catholic wife of the heir to the English throne, James II, who himself had converted to Catholicism.

When the infamous ‘Titus Oates’ plot broke out and a fresh wave of persecutions struck the recusant Catholics and Catholic priests of England, saint Claude met secretly with future English martyr saint John Wall and confided his admiration for the sacrifices priests were offering in the ‘land of crosses’.

St Claude declared he would willingly give his life for the Catholic Faith in England but was exiled after having completed his task of giving the spark of devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus among the faithful English. In this film we look at the life and mission of St. Claude, England and the Titus Oates plot as well as the first shrine to the Sacred Heart of Jesus in England, linked to Saint John Henry Newman.
