On the day following the 8th anniversary of the death of Blessed John Paul II, we screened the documentary film, The Prophet of Our Time. This “labor of love” was produced and directed by Lannette Turicchi, Falling Upwards Productions. Over a 6 year period, Lannette and her team had very helpful access to Vatican archives, to senior Church officials in Rome, the United States and Poland.
Rather than attempt a linear narrative of the life of Pope John Paul along with the mountain of accomplishments, Mrs. Turicchi chose to present the human person through his relationships with a variety of friends and colleagues and his love for the Our Lord Jesus Christ, his Church and his Mother, Mary.
About 40 people attended the screening and were enthused about its content and quality. The film is not yet available to the public, but come back to the Faith and Family Media Blog for distribution details as soon as they are available.
