"Fr. Alberione is an inspiration for anyone in media, and specifically those of us in Catholic media. The challenges we face do not diminish our mandate to share the Good News."
Bonnie Rodgers, Director of Marketing and Programming, The CatholicTV Network
About this DVD:
On the night between the nineteenth and twentieth century, during Eucharistic Adoration, then-seminarian James Alberione had a vision that would change his life and the lives of countless others. After his ordination, Alberione set the example for Catholics looking to evangelize the world using the media. Never content to stay with what was common to the time, he and his Pauline family-the ten religious congregations and institutions which Alberione founded consisting of bishops, priests, brothers, sisters, and laity numbering more than 10,000 in over sixty countries-pushed the boundaries of communications and media to bring the Catholic message.
With parts filmed on-location in Rome, and Alba in northern Italy, Media Apostle: The James Alberione Story is a glimpse into the life of Father James Alberione who was beatified by Saint John Paul II in 2003.
"Bl. James Alberione's prophetic vision years ago has paved the way for the Church's presence in media today, and it also is an essential voice and foundation for all of the Church's efforts in the area of media and communications. An excellent documentary on one of the Church's great ambassadors of communication."
Fr. Thomas Rosica, CSB, CEO of Salt + Light Catholic Media Foundation
