Commentary and insights are provided by numerous priests, as they reflect on their own calling and consider what it means to act “In Persona Christi”. Featuring Bishop Mark Davies, Fr Hugh Allan, Fr Marcus Holden, Fr Andrew Pinsent, Fr John Saward, Fr Lawrence Lew, Fr Paschal Uche, Fr Behruz Raf’at, Fr Toby Lees, and Fr Matt Roche-Saunders.

A Time to Revive: Rebuilding the Catholic Faith Today
Our world is troubled: wars, terrorism, political and social unrest, family breakdown, mass migrations, moral confusion, violence, confusion and chaos.
Appealing to tried and tested methods from the Church’s life and history, this film sets forth a blueprint for revival in the Catholic Church and consequently a renewal in families, communities, and the world around us.

In the Gospels we hear Jesus refer to his mother Mary as “Woman”. This reference should draw our attention to the woman mentioned in Genesis, as well as in the book of Revelation. But who is this “Woman”, and why is she so central in the history of Salvation?
This powerful film considers the Catholic teaching about Mary, the mother of Jesus, and her important role in the Church and in the lives of Christians today. The dogmas of Mother of God, Immaculate Conception, Perpetual Virginity, and Assumption are explained along with other traditional beliefs and devotions to Mary.
Insightful commentary is provided by Fr Marcus Holden, Fr Andrew Pinsent, Sr Mary of the Trinity, Fr Jeff Steel, and Joanna Bogle, along with a number of young people speaking about their faith and love of Our Blessed Lady.
What is grace? What is its purpose? How do we receive it? Who can receive it? Are there different types of grace? Are there mistaken or erroneous teachings about grace? How does modern research help us understand the idea of grace?
In Christian theology, the various names and types of grace share one key idea: a
St Augustine, as a young man in the Roman Empire, speculated about the existence and nature of divinity. Only after his conversion into the life of grace, however, did he speak to God in personal, passionate, and intimate terms: “Late have I loved You, O beauty so ancient and so new; late have I loved You!”
What are miracles? Are miracles possible and, if so, how do we know? Do miracles happen and, if so, what is their purpose? What attitudes should we take towards reports of miracles? How might miracles impact on our prospects for future happiness? What are the perspectives of science, theology, and philosophy on miracles today?
The exploration of miracles raises some of the most important spiritual, intellectual and personal questions that we face. An understanding of miracles is important for catechesis in parishes and in the home, for personal spiritual and intellectual growth, for devotions, as well as many courses in religious studies and the humanities in general today.
This film explores these questions from a Catholic perspective, informed by historical and modern discussions in science, philosophy, and theology, as well as cases of particular miracles, ancient and contemporary. Featuring Fr Marcus Holden, Fr Andrew Pinsent, Jamie and Joanna Bogle.
To Be A Pilgrim: The Canterbury Way
An ancient trail of pilgrimage runs through south-east England; a pathway along which so much of English identity converges. It is the way of St Thomas Becket, the martyr who stood up to a King and inspired Christendom. It is a route that drew countless pilgrims in ages past, captured the imagination of Chaucer and is reviving in our own times.
This film follows Fr Marcus Holden and Fr Nicholas Schofield as they journey from London to Canterbury. Along the way they discover the story of St Thomas and some fascinating traditions: the Rood of Boxley, the splendour of Rochester, the ‘second Carmel’ at Aylesford and many more.
By retracing the steps of the medieval pilgrims, this film draws out the rich Christian heritage of England and reflects on what it means ‘To Be A Pilgrim’.

Faith of Our Fathers: In Search of the English Martyrs
During the English Reformation, hundreds of brave men and women suffered all manner of persecution in order to cling to the Catholic faith that had been integral to the life of the nation for over a thousand years. Many were subject to heavy fines, exclusion, and prison sentences. For others, particularly priests, or anyone assisting a priest, a death sentence was the expected outcome.
In this fascinating film, Fr Marcus Holden and Fr Nicholas Schofield lead you on a journey to discover more about some of these heroic figures, the times in which they lived and their significance for Catholics today. From the lives of well-known saints like Thomas More, Margaret Clitherow and Edmund Campion, to lesser known figures like Roger Wrenno and Francis Bell, the message of the English martyrs is re-presented for a contemporary audience. It is a message of great faith and profound courage.
Along the way, you’ll discover places such as Stonor Park and Wardley Hall, Tyburn and Rievaulx Abbey. Interviews with Archbishop Vincent Nichols, Bishop Terence Brain, Lord Camoys, and many more help to re-tell the stories of these heroic figures who laid down their lives to preserve the ‘Faith of Our Fathers’.
