A DVD series that presents true stories of people whose example of service to Christ and His Church have made a lasting impression on others. These heroes lived truly great lives, marked by moral depth, strength of character, outstanding courage, and unswerving commitment.

Seeing the struggles they faced in order to serve Christ and His Church, and how they succeeded so gloriously, we are challenged to follow their sample of dedication. Pope (Emeritus) Benedict XVI said of the saints that we look to their “shining example to reawaken within us the great longing to be like them; happy to live near God, in His light, in the great family of God’s friends. Being a saint means living close to God, to live in His family. And this is the vocation of us all.”

Suggested audience: Ages 8 and older.
