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.

"The first time I saw Maureen after she came home from Europe, I was absolutely shocked! ... I have no medical explanation!" - Dr Kenneth Gershengorn, MD.
Maureen Digan underwent over sixty operations since she was diagnosed at age 14 with the incurable Milroy's Disease. Her husband Bob had such a strong faith in God that he knew his wife and their seriously ill son, Bobby, would both be healed. In 1981, Bob was inspired to take his family to the grave of a holy nun in Poland, and to pray for the intercession of Sister Faustina...
This 54-minute DVD tells the story of Maureen and Bob Digan and the miracle that led to the beatification of Sr. Maria Faustina Kowalska. Be inspired by the story of the family's faith, and their testimony to the power of the Divine Mercy of Christ.
Highly recommended! - John Canavan, Director of Divine Mercy Publications.

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.

The life story of one of history's most remarkable heroines is boldly brought to the screen in Victor Fleming's Academy Award-winning production Joan of Arc - an epic tale of faith, bravery and the ultimate sacrifice.
Starring Ingrid Bergman (in an Academy Award-nominated performance) as the 15th-century French peasant girl driven by the divine power of God, who famously sets out to not only inspire her people but triumphantly lead an army against her British oppressors.
In the wake of her spectacular success, the newly crowned King of France (Jose Ferrer, in an Academy Award-nominated debut performance) soon becomes wary of her prominent rise and suspicious of her growing popularity amongst the people of France. The corruption of power leads to the ultimate betrayal, forcing Joan into a fiery corner to face her greatest battle of all.
