In 1987, coinciding with the occasion of Pope John Paul II's visit to the United States, the motion picture Divine Mercy - No Escape was premiered at Grauman's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. The film was an act of faith in God's mercy for mankind, and a fulfillment of the Congregation of the Marians' commitment to spread the message of Divine Mercy brought to the world through a young Polish nun.
Although the mystical life of the heroine, Saint Faustina, is not yet as well-known as that of Saint Catherine of Siena or Saint Teresa of Avila, her message is of equal importance - perhaps even greater importance for our time.
In a diary which she called Divine Mercy in My Soul, Saint Faustina recorded all that God had told her. Although she had received very little formal schooling, Faustina wrote with few corrections or erasures. During the last years of her life, she wrote the equivalent of 600 printed pages. This was a work of faith.
Divine Mercy - No Escape captures the tenderness of Sister Faustina's heart toward her mission as she receives the call to join the sisters, as she accepts the words of the Lord, as she shows mercy for the suffering. But there is more to Divine Mercy - No Escape than the moving story of a young nun whose compassion reaches beyond her to all generations. It is the story of Divine Mercy unfolding today.
With Helen Hayes as principal narrator, and introducing Melanie Metcalf as Sister Faustina.

An epic story of one man's dedication, devotion and sacrifice, The Good Pope is as much a tribute to the man as a discovery of a modern hero.
Known for his profound spirituality and destined for greatness, Angelo Roncalli (Bob Hoskins, The Long Good Friday) studied theology in Bergamo and began an extraordinary journey that would bring him great honour and worldwide respect.
During his years of studies he garnered much attention, spreading his compassion across the people and befriended Mattia (Carlo Cecchi, Stealing Beauty) and Nicola (Francesco Carnelutti, The Da Vinci Code) before being ordained in Rome in 1904. Through a lifetime of good work and influence as a leader, a builder and representative of the Church, Roncalli's destiny would be secured after the passing of Pope Pius XII - to hear the gentle words of Jesus and lead the Church into new and challenging times as Pope John XXIII. 136 minutes.

This epic film (6.5hrs) Jesus of Nazareth remains one of the most inspirational films ever made for television.
Filmed in 1977, Jesus of Nazareth remains to this day a favourite for many Christians throughout the world. The director, Franco Zeffirelli, is believed to have created one of the most reverently accurate portrayals of Christ ever seen on film. It is reported to have been the late Pope John Paul II's favourite film on the life of Christ.
Beginning before the Nativity and extending through the Crucifixion and Resurrection, Jesus of Nazareth brings to life all the majesty and sweeping drama of the life of Jesus (portrayed here by Robert Powell) as told in the Gospels.
The film provides the setting and background for the birth, childhood, baptism, teaching and many miracles of the Messiah, culminating in the Divine Resurrection.
