Knowledge brings us closer to Our Lord and our faith. The homily during the Mass is usually about the Reading (or Readings for Novus Ordo Masses) and the Gospel. Here are a collection of homilies and talks by priests that you will not usually hear about.

Movies About Saints

There are some wonderful old and new movies about saints. These ones can be found on YouTube.

Song of Bernadette (1943)

Very moving movie about St. Bernadette of Lourdes. The Blessed Virgin appeared to her in a miserable grotto and the site in France is now a famous place of pilgrimage. She was born in 1844 and died at the age of thirty-five and her body remains incorrupted. Her feast day is April 16. Suitable for children to watch.

Never Take No For An Answer (1951)

Not a movie about the life of a particular saint but still a beautiful Catholic-themed movie. It is a story about a fictional boy named Pepino who journeyed to the Vatican in the hope of seeing the Pope and asking permission to bring his dying donkey to the tomb of St Francis in order to save her life. Suitable for children.

The Reluctant Saint (1962)

St. Joseph of Cupertino, Italy, was a simple young man who was sent to live in a monastery. To the surprise of many, he became a priest and went on to have a life with many ecstasies and levitations. He was born in 1603 and died at the age of sixty. His feast day is September 18. Suitable for children to watch.

Karol: A Man Who Became Pope (2005)

A very moving and powerful movie about Karol Wojtyla of Poland. Karol was a writer and actor who endured Nazi occupation and suffered great loss, found his calling and eventually became Pope John Paul II. He was later made a saint. He was born in 1920 and died at the age of eighty-four. His feast day is October 22. This movie has war scenes and is not suitable for children to watch.
