Stories of Hope and Heroic Love in Action


Human Stories of Divine Love

The idea of witness is very important to us as Catholics. Our faith is strengthened and moved to action by the great “cloud of witnesses” around us. Simply put, we learn by example.

This new documentary series features six incredible witnesses from people who have profoundly encountered Christ and are now living like Him—people who make this world more closely resemble the next.

The Power of Witness

Thanks to the good work of many Catholic organizations, the Church is full of dynamic programs and products for catechesis and faith formation. This documentary series is something different. In a time where people struggle to see beauty, goodness, and truth in the world, these films provide hope and renewal as we glimpse into the lives of everyday heroes who have been changed by their encounter with Jesus Christ. So, although this series may teach us about the love of God, it's not about catechesis ... it's about witness.
