I Prefer Heaven
DVD SALE PRICE: $24.75
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 to join St. Ignatius of Loyola's new order of Jesuits and be a missionary to India, Philip was 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.
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. Philip 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"
