2000 DVD with guide 40 min. Four smiling children join hands and begin circling around, laughing and singing, "Ring around the rosie. A pocket full of posies. Ashes. Ashes. We all fall down!" With that, they collapse in a heap of giggles. But do these children know they are singing about a plague that struck England in the seventeenth century? Probably not. However, this familiar children's song is a reminder that death may not be such an uncommon subject in children's lives.

For children, death seems unreal and at a distance -- until it comes close: a grandparent, a father, a mother, a sibling, or a pet dies. Suddenly death becomes real and immediate -- and children have questions about what has happened: What does die mean? Where is Daddy now? In heaven? Can I go see him? A Place Prepared will help you talk with children about death and heaven, and help you to prepare them for the inevitable losses that they will experience thoughout their lives.

There's not much to go on beyond the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John (which may have been written by others after their deaths), and there's certainly no documentary footage, but A&E uses interviews with Biblical scholars, photography of the beautiful Galileean countryside, and dramatic re-creations to bring his actions to life. It's pretty much inarguable that Jesus has had a greater impact on our culture than any other person in history, so the more we know about him, the better.

What troubles Brother Andre, then 65 years of age, is the extent of the huge number of visitors; the very success leads him to think that he may be exiled to Memramcook, N.B. He knows only too well that, at a meeting of the Council of Notre-Dame College, with the agreement of Father General, his order decided to concentrate, first and foremost, on its teaching ministry, and to leave to others the project of the Basilica which seems to be purely a tourist attraction.

Endless Exodus: The Sorrowful Flight of the Migrants Social Justice Youth & Adults Gerard Thomas Straub 2004 DVD 130 minutes Endless Exodus is a film about migrants from Mexico and Central America who cross the border without any documentation.

It is a meditation on migration, the plight of the chronically poor and Christ's directive to reach out to those in need. The film does not intend to tackle the immense complexity surrounding the problem of illegal immigration.

The film parallels our own spiritual journey through our own desert of doubts and confusions, as the migrants teach us about sacrifice, fearlessness and dedication in the face of grave circumstances.

You will need to stop your life for an evening in order to understand what it will take to give life to the people in this film. Surrender to the film. Allow the images and words to slowly wash over you.

Freedom to Love Spiritual Growth Youth & Adult Christopher West 2007 DVD set with guide 3 dvds; 5 sessions What is Freedom?
The world tells us that freedom is the ability to do what we want, whenever we want, with whomever we want. But has this led to strong relationships, strong families, or strong communities? Since the days of the "sexual revolution," the opposite has played out. Sexual chaos, exploitation, broken families, and a lot of pain have been the result of "freedom".

Recognizing the world's confusion, Blessed John Paul II proclaimed the Theology of the Body -- a profound message of love and human sexuality. He turned the notion of freedom on its head, declaring it to be selfless rather than selfish. He says "freedom exists for the sake of love". Authentic freedom, therefore, always asks "what is the good of the other person," not "what's in it for me?"

In this powerful, five-part study for young adults, popular author and presenter Christopher West lays out a convincing and refreshing road map to living a life of freedom. The concepts presented in this study will change everything, including your worldview.

Freedom to Love is ideal for college campus and parish young adult ministries and addresses critical questions.

Inside the Vatican: The Politics and Organization of the Catholic Church Church Adult Thomas J Reese 1996 Book 317 Drawing on more than a hundred interviews with Vatican officials, this book affords a firsthand look at the people, the politics, and the organization behind the institution. Reese brings remarkable clarity to the almost Byzantine bureaucracy of congregations, agencies, secretariats, tribunals, nunciature, and offices, showing how they serve the pope and, through him, the universal church. He gives a lively account of how popes are elected and bishops appointed, how dissident theologians are disciplined and civil authorities dealt with. Throughout, revealing and colorful anecdotes from church history and the present day bring the unique culture of the Vatican to life.

The Vatican is a fascinating institution, a model of continuity and adaptation, which remains constant while functioning powerfully in a changing world. As never before, this book provides a clear, objective perspective on how the enormously complex institution surrounding the papacy operates on a day-to-day level, how it has adapted and endured for close to two thousand years, and how it is likely to face the challenges of the next millennium.

Into Great Silence Spiritual Life Adult Philip GrAA#ning 2007-10-23 DVD
Nestled deep in the postcard-perfect French Alps, the Grande Chartreuse is considered one of the world's most ascetic monasteries. In 1984, German filmmaker philip Groning wrote to the Carthusian order for permission to make a documentary about them. They said they would get back to him. Sixteen years later, they were ready. Groning, sans crew or artificial lighting, lived in the monds' quarters for six months -- filming their daily prayers, tasks, rituals and rare outdoor excursions. This transcendent, closely observed film seeks to embody a monastery, rather than simply depict one -- it has no score, no voiceover and no archival footage. What remains is stunningly elemental: time, space and light. One of the most mesmerizing and poetic chronicles of spirituality ever created, Into Great Silence dissolves the border between screen and audience with a total immersion into the hush of monastic life. More meditation than documentary, it's a rare, transformative experience for all.

Joan of Arc: Child of War, Soldier of God Saints Youth & Adults Andrew Ward 2005-04-15 DVD Running time: 56 min. An icon of medieval history, Joan of Arc is both a legendary heroine and a martyred saint. Inspired by "voices" she believed came from God, the illiterate peasant girl emerged at 17 from a war-torn corner of France to rally a demoralized army and change the course of history. Joan's story -- based on her actual testimony -- comes to television in "JOAN OF ARC: Child of War, Soldier of God" an original special which premieres on Hallmark Channel, Monday, March 21 at 10p.m.ET (9p.m.CT). Tony AwardA# Nominee, Alfred Molina narrates and Anna Paquin -- Academy AwardA#-winning actor for "The Piano" -- is the voice of Joan. As the English raided the countryside villages of France in 1425, 13-year-old Joan began hearing voices that demanded she bring peace to war-ravaged France. By 17, she had convinced the leaders of France to grant her an army. She fearlessly mobilized her troops on a quest that stunned the English invaders and brought about the coronation of the French heir to the throne. At 19, Joan was convicted of heresy and sentenced to death. The new special was filmed on location in France and the Czech Republic. For the first time, viewers can see Joan's life unfold through her own eyes and based on her own words, and experience the powerful grip of faith that inspired her to lead. Faith & Values Media's original docudrama was directed and produced by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker Pamela Mason Wagner, who earlier brought the lives of Saint Francis of Assisi and Saint Patrick to television for Faith & Values Media. The executive producers of "JOAN OF ARC: Child of War, Soldier of God" are Edward J. Murray and William Spencer Reilly of Faith & Values Media and Jeffrey C. Weber of Lightworks Producing Group.

Ten years after the Spanish conquest of Mexico in 1521, an Indian peasant named Juan Diego saw a beautiful lady standing on the barren Tepeyac hill. The lady was dressed as an Indian woman, had Indian features and spoke to Juan Diego in his own language. She gave him a message for the bishop: "Build my church here." Juan Diego was viewed as an illiterate and naive peasant, so his story was doubted. The bishop asked for a sign. Three days later, Juan Diego returned, his arms full of roses gathered from the barren hill, his tilma, or cloak, imprinted with the lady's image. Throughout history, God has used the poor and the powerless to act as social critics. Juan Diego not only helped reverse attitudes of political and Church authorities toward native people, but also initiated an experience fof faith that has survived nearly five centuries.

Obama: All Access - Barack Obama's Road to the White House Documentary Adult
2009-02-10 DVD Run time: 3 hrs. 41 min Correspondent Steve Kroft hosts this 60 Minutes special documenting Barack Obama's path to the presidency. The two programs include The 44th President, from November 16th, 2008, and The Road to the White House, from December 28th, 2008. The opening segment features the President-elect's first post-election interview, in which he discusses his plans for the days ahead, but takes pains to avoid too many specifics. When Kroft asks about the future of General Motors, for instance, Obama replies, "Let's see how this thing plays out." On the subject of cabinet appointments, he speaks in general terms, smiles, and then says, "Beyond that, you're not getting any more out of me, Steve." At the midway point, Michelle Obama joins in to talk about their personal goals. For their children, they say they##re striving to maintain normalcy, though her husband acknowledges that "the loss of anonymity" is an unavoidable drawback. (Kroft's only silly question: "Do you have a transition team for the dog?"). The second episode begins as the former senator lays the groundwork for candidacy and ends with his victory speech in Chicago. If the previous program focuses primarily on positives, the second touches on concerns that threatened to curtail Obama's rise, like his association with Pastor Jeremiah Wright. The feature "What You Haven't Seen" offers never-before-seen material from seven different stories, while "Major Speeches" presents six key public appearances, notably his declaration, inaugural address, and "A More Perfect Union," in which he talks about race in America, including the Wright controversy. --Kathleen C.

When his homeland is invaded by the Nazis in 1939, he and his friends secretly oppose the systematic persecution of their Polish culture. The newly ordained Karol is constantly surrounded by young people whom he teaches to safeguard and defend human dignity. On the death of Pope John Paul I in 1978, the cardinals of the Conclave decide that Woytjla is the right man to replace him.

But the Pope does not stop being the voice of Christ, even among the injustices of the capitalistic Western world, and even among the provocations and challenges of modern times. The Great Jubilee of 2000 is the most moving evidence of his mission: 3 million young people in love with the Pope gather in Rome, bringing with them the whole world's hopes.

Saint Anthony: The Miracle Worker of Padua Saints Youth & Adults
2003 DVD with guide 95 min. This is the first feature length dramatic film on the life of St. Anthony of Padua, one of the most popular saints in Christian history, and one who is even revered by Muslim and Hindu communities. Shot on location in Italy with top-notch acting and glorious cinematography, this film tells the story of his amazing and adventurous life from his youth to his death at a young age. Born into a Portugese noble family in 1195, Anthony defied his father's wishes to become a knight and, instead, followed the call of God to become a humble monk. He eventually joined the Franciscans and was a follower of St. Francis of Assisi. Anthony became renowned for his powerful preaching and his miracles that won countless souls for Christ. This film tells of his travels through Italy, his mission to Morocco, and his meeting with St. Francis. It beautifully portrays the power of his preaching, the holiness of his life given completely to Christ, his love for the poor, and the wonders of his miracles. Worn out and sick from his dedication and zeal, Anthony died at the age of 36 in Padua shortly after working his last great miracle. Soon after his death he was canonized a saint by Pope Gregory IX.
