Renowned speaker and author Fr. Michael Gaitley tells the dramatic history of God’s
Love and Mercy as interwoven through the transformative message of St. Faustina, the
miraculous appearance of Mary at Fatima, the witness of Maximillian Kolbe, and the
world-changing papacy of Pope Saint John Paul II.
Featuring the brilliant cinematic artistry of the Augustine Institute’s film studio, the vast
panorama of God’s work of mercy in the world unfolds as a story to be experienced.
