Don Bosco: Special Edition DVD

Description

Ben Gazzara stars in this classic film about St. John Bosco, the beloved 19th century Italian priest who sought out the homeless youth of Turin to help them have a better life. He overcame incredible challenges, including the government who wanted him out of the way, an archbishop who tried to silence him, and the revolution that put a price on his head. But nothing could stop Don Bosco from rescuing the poor and outcast children to give them a home, teach them work skills, and catechize them in the Catholic faith. Don Bosco is the inspiring true story of a brave and holy priest whose single-handed battle to save the children of the streets inspired the formation of the Salesians , which is now a worldwide religious order that carries on his work with youth everywhere. Blessed with tremendous gifts, a creative imagination and a great sense of humor, Bosco had a winning way with youth and was a brilliant educator. Having suffered much in his own youth and growing up without a father gave him compassion for the many orphans he cared for, and his profound charity shines through in this film. His deep devotion to and trust in Our Lady was a great source of blessings and strength for his work with youth that continues to this day. Patsy Kensit and Karl Zinny also star with Gazzara, and the film was directed by Leandro Castellani. This Special Edition includes a never before seen 43 minute "Behind the Scenes" featurette, Collector's Booklet with Study Guide and Film Photos. This DVD contains the following language options: In English with optional Spanish subtitles. This is a Region 1 DVD (playable ONLY in Bermuda, Canada, the Cayman Islands, United States and U.S. territories).

  • The Greatest Miracle DVD

    The Greatest Miracle DVD

    From the Producer of For Greater Glory, this is a beautiful, animated story about the power and impact of the grace of God, and of unseen spiritual influences and events, in our lives, especially in Church during our participation in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. It focuses on three characters and their guardian angels, and how we all have the freedom to choose to do good or evil, to pray, and the consequences from our choices. It shows the great spiritual power of the sacrament of Confession, and beautifully reveals the meaning and importance of each aspect of the Mass, our greatest prayer and miracle, through which we share in such close "communion" with almighty God by receiving Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist.

  • Nine Days That Changed the World DVD

    Nine Days That Changed the World DVD

    Pope John Paul II's historic nine-day pilgrimage to Poland in June of 1979 created a revolution of conscience that transformed Poland and fundamentally reshaped the spiritual and political landscape of the 20th Century. Newt and Callista Gingrich, along with a Polish, American, and Italian cast, explore what transpired during these nine days that moved the Polish people to renew their hearts, reclaim their courage, and free themselves from the shackles of Communism.

    Millions of Poles, almost one third of the nation, turned out to see the Holy Father in person, while the rest of the country followed his pilgrimage on television and radio. Within sixteen months, Solidarity became the first officially recognized free trade union in the Communist bloc, with over 10 million members. The momentum of this dramatic nine-day visit would eventually lead to the fall of the Berlin Wall in November of 1989 and the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991.

    Featuring exclusive interviews with George Weigel, Michael Novak, John O'Sullivan, Jerzy Kluger, Fr. Adam Boniecki, Fr. Thomas Williams, Fr. Wojciech Giertych, President Lech Walesa, President Vaclav Havel, Former CIA Director James Woolsey, and many more.

    Nine Days that Changed the World is a powerful, inspiring story of human liberation, revealing the extraordinary power of Pope John Paul II's worldwide message of freedom through faith.

    This is a Region 1 DVD (playable ONLY in Bermuda, Canada, the Cayman Islands, United States and U.S. territories).

  • Cosmic Origins DVD

    Cosmic Origins DVD

    How did we get here? How did everything get here - our planet, our solar system ... our universe?

    For generations, science has ignored the concept of creation because doing otherwise would beg the question ... of a Creator. Today, however, we have compelling evidence - from science itself - for a beginning and fine-tuning of the universe. The insights are complementary, and that very fact provides evidence of a transcendent, intelligent Creator.

    Cosmic Origins explores those insights. Executive Producer Fr. Robert J. Spitzer, S.J., Ph.D., is a philosopher, educator, author and former President of Gonzaga University. He is founder and President of the Magis Institute for Faith and Reason, an organization dedicated to public education on the relationship among the disciplines of physics, philosophy, reason, and faith.

    This fascinating film features Fr. Spitzer and a group of physicists and academic heavyweights exploring modern scientific theories about how the universe came to exist. Joining Fr. Spitzer are Nobel Laureate Arno Penzias (who discovered the background radiation from the Big Bang), Templeton Prize winners John Polkinghorne (Cambridge) and Michael Heller (Vatican Observatory), Owen Gingerich (Harvard), Lisa Randall (Harvard), Jennifer Wiseman (NASA) and Stephen Barr (University of Delaware), who narrates the film.Throughout the journey, viewers learn that modern scientific paths point toward a very Christian understanding of how we came to be.

    Cosmic Origins explains what we know about the beginning and nature of the universe, as well as its transcendent implications in clear, easy-to-understand terms. The film weaves together a compelling narrative from academics and credentialed scientists pointing toward a very Christian understanding of how the universe came to exist.

    Cosmic Origins expertly conveys a vital and important message for everyone - our Christian faith is not disproven by modern science, but rather corroborated by it.

    This is a Region 1 DVD (playable ONLY in Bermuda, Canada, the Cayman Islands, United States and U.S. territories).

  • Restless Heart DVD

    Restless Heart DVD

    A special 2-DVD collector's edition of the acclaimed epic film on St. Augustine of Hippo. Filmed in Europe, the first full-length feature movie on Augustine, it uses a historic backdrop to tell the true story of one of the Church's most beloved and well-known Saints. Its message of sin, conversion, redemption is as timely today as it was in the 5th century of Augustine. It is the story of a gifted man who pursues fame and fortune without a moral compass - and the dramatic changes that occur in his soul when challenging events lead him to see the light of truth. It also chronicles the collapse of the Roman world and how Augustine laid the intellectual foundations of what became Europe. With Augustine, the stories of two other great saints, Monica and Ambrose, are also portrayed.

  • My Heart Will Triumph by Mirjana Soldo

    My Heart Will Triumph by Mirjana Soldo

    Mirjana Soldo was only 16 years old when she and five other children saw a mysterious young woman on a remote hillside in the village of Medjugorje, then part of Yugoslavia. The woman—who possessed a beauty and grace that seemed to come from beyond—identified herself as the Virgin Mary.

    The apparitions that began on the afternoon of June 24, 1981 would dramatically change Mirjana’s life and the lives of countless people around the world. Her claims, however, contradicted the atheistic ideologies of the Communist government and Mirjana was deemed “an enemy of the state.”

    Amazingly, the apparitions have continued for over 35 years. Millions of people travel to Medjugorje every year in search of answers to life’s biggest questions. The messages given by Mary are a call for mankind to return to God. And, according to Mirjana, the Virgin entrusted her with ten secrets that foretell the future of the world—secrets that she will reveal within her lifetime.

    Paperback. 369 pages. A portion of every book sold goes to Mary's Meals, a charity which feeds over a million children every day.

    SPECIAL OFFER: Every copy of My Heart Will Triumph ordered here on CatholicShop.com comes with a free My Heart Will Triumph bookmark!
