Film shows how Our Lady brings back people to the Faith


Every year, an all across the world, millions of people visit sactuaries dedicated to Our Lady. Behind each pilgrim theres a story. The film "Marys Land.

"Let's talk about people that have lived without God for many years, and now live with Him. They have the authority to say, I've tested both recipes, and this one is better. Well, let's see if they are fed up, if they are mentally unstable, or if they show some truth.”
