Subject Matters - Soldier of Christ   
Debates over the legacy of Pope Pius XII are so heated they are known as the “Pius wars.” Robert Ventresca’s definitive biography Soldier of Christ moves beyond competing caricatures in a remarkably comprehensive and balanced way. While offering insight into the pope’s response to Nazism, Ventresca argues that it was the Cold War and Pius XII’s manner of engaging with the modern world that defined his pontificate. Accused of moral equivocation during the Holocaust, Pius XII later fought the spread of Communism in Western Europe, spoke against the persecution of Catholics in Eastern Europe and Asia, and tackled a range of social and political issues. By appointing the first indigenous cardinals from China and India and expanding missions in Africa while expressing solidarity with independence movements, he internationalized the church’s membership and moved Catholicism beyond the colonial mentality of previous eras. Drawing from a diversity of international sources, including unexplored documentation from the Vatican, Ventresca reveals a paradoxical figure: a prophetic reformer of limited vision whose leadership both stimulated the emergence of a global Catholicism and sowed doubt and dissension among some of the church’s most faithful servants.

François Apostle of America   
This documentary presents to us François de Laval, Quebec’s first bishop and founder of the North American Church. He was a man of faith of epic proportions who measured up to the size of a continent. Sent to New France in the 17th century as an Apostolic Vicar, this French missionary arrived in Quebec in 1659. He actively participated in New France’s development, in its religious as well as political matters. Successor of the Council of Trent, which he drew heavily from, Mgr. de Laval undertook great works, notably favouring the education of young people and the formation of priests. Attached to the Native American people, he courageously defended their rights. Detached from material objects, he gave what he owned to the poor. A tireless visionary, he founded a new Church in a new country. Modern, he adapted this ecclesial organization to fit the contexts of mission and evangelization... His works are numerous and his legacy is precious. The Church today gives us an example; discover his saga. St. François de Laval was canonized in April 2014 by Pope Francis.

John Paul II in America: Uniting a Continent   
John Paul II in America: Uniting a Continent explores how the papacy of St. John Paul II left an indelible mark on the American continent. Driven by his singular conviction of a “United American Continent” under the patronage of Our Lady of Guadalupe, John Paul II’s papal travels from Argentina to Alaska generated massive crowds, shaped an entire generation and ultimately changed the course of history. Narrated by actor Andy Garcia, the film features rare archival footage and insightful analysis from leading figures including Cardinal Seán P. O’Malley of Boston, Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson, John Paul II biographer George Weigel and former Vatican spokesman Joaquín Navarro-Valls. Viewers will be both intrigued and moved by the documentary’s unprecedented framework for understanding one of the giant figures of our times.
