 Our Description

An epic feature film on the famous "Apostle of Rome" and great friend of youth in the 16th century.  One of the most popular saints of all time, St. Philip Neri was widely known for his great charity, deep prayer life, and tremendous humor. Hoping o join St. Ignatius of Loyola's new order of Jesuits and be a missionary in India, Philip instead guided by Providence to seek out the poor and abandoned youth of Rome to catechize them in the faith and help them find a better life. He became the founder of the religious congregation, the Oratory, that worked with the youth and also labored to re-evangelize a decadent Rome.

This captivating film highlights Neri's great love for youth, his warm sense of humor, contagious joy, deep mystical spirituality, and his amazing gift for miracles.

Actor Gigi Proietti gives a moving performance as St. Philiip in this beautifully produced film that is directed by Giacomo Campiotti, director of the acclaimed films Bakhita: From Slave to Saint and St. Giuseppe Moscatti.

Includes a 16 page booklet. Also includes bonus features of the “Making of” and “Behind the scenes.”

This DVD contains the following language options: Italian with English or Spanish subtitles.
