Pope Francis: No people is criminal and no religion is terrorist

February 17, 2017. Pope Francis has sent an important message to the Meetings of Popular Movements that is taking place in Modesto (California). The pope denounces the "moral blindness of this indifference”: "under the guise of what is politically correct or ideologically fashionable, one looks at those who suffer without touching them. But they are televised live; they are talked about in euphemisms and with apparent tolerance, but nothing is done systematically to heal the social wounds or to confront the structures that leave so many brothers and sisters by the wayside”.

Animated movie stars one of the first female martyrs, Saint Perpetua

2010-01-15

Catholic Heros of the Faith presents “The story of St. Perpetua” hoping her faith and martyrdom will inspire the minds of young Catholics with the lives of holy people.

St. Perpetua and her friends were arrested in Carthage, North Africa in 203 A.D and martyred after refusing to renounce their faith. But while she was behind bars she kept detailed accounts of what she was going through, details played out in the film.

The producers say the movie teaches kids about conviction and features what they call “true heros”. While the film depicts intense moments, including the death of St. Perpetua, the film maker says the half-hour DVD is appropriate for kids over 8 years old.

"The Story of St. Perpetua” is the first in a series of animated films ‘Catholic Heros of Faith’ plan to produce including one on life of John Paul II and another on the Blessed Mother Teresa.
