DISC 1: God’s Champion – St. Edmund :
Of the many titles given to the great Elizabethan Jesuit priest and English Martyr Father Edmund , ‘God’s Champion’ certainly presents this heroic missionary as he was for the Catholic of 16th Century England as well as for all of us today.
St. was named after an ancient saint of England often invoked for the weather. As a young man he travelled the continent before he met and married his devoutly Catholic wife, Alice. St. loved to share the faith during a troubled time in England and put himself out to ensure that the Mass was made available. He built a secret room in his London house where his friends could celebrate Mass and when it was finally discovered he joyfully faced his calling, leaving us a moving and inspiring witness of Catholic faithfulness. Featuring moments of creation and beauty with original haunting and medieval music written for the film.
Saint Margaret Ward was a young Catholic woman living in Elizabethan England. During this time, it was against the law to attend Mass and also praying the rosary or even lighting devotional candles carried with them fines or sometimes imprisonment in the wake of the Protestant Reformation. Saint Margaret Ward helped priests who travelled the country offering Mass in the homes of Catholics. She was especially concerned for priests who had been arrested and lingered in prison. As well as hand making devotions such as rosary beads, and helping to plan routes the missionary priests would take in England, Saint Margaret planned the escape of a priest from a high-security prison. The escape went horribly wrong, our young Saint was captured, questioned and placed on trial and joyfully confessed that she was a Catholic woman as well as an obedient subject to the queen. She was sentenced to be hanged for refusing to deny the Catholic Church in this difficult time in England’s history. The Church recognises Saint Margaret Ward as a martyr and canonized her as one of the 40 Martyrs of England and Wales. Get to know her story in this film from Mary’s Dowry Productions.
This collection is available worldwide on region free DVD format and is on 6 DVDs in one 6-way DVD case with a total running time of 180 minutes.
