Praise for True Reformers

“In every age one encounters a cloud of witnesses whose lives articulate its deepest longings. This penetrating analysis—marked by spiritual, historical, and cultural insight—introduces the vibrant personalities who so clearly understood the larger implications hidden beneath the surface in the era of the European Reformations.”

– Don J. Briel, Bl. John Henry Newman Chair, University of Mary

“These stunning portraits of ten very great saints show the beauty of God’s grace shining through the lives of his closest friends. The path marked out by the True Reformers of the sixteenth century is the path we still need to walk in the twenty?first: the steep and narrow path of holiness.”

– Christopher O. Blum, Ph.D., Academic Dean and Professor of History and Philosophy, Augustine Institute

“To read these accounts is a kind of retreat. It provides an opportunity to reflect on our love of God, our prayer life, and the mission God has given each of us in light of our spiritual teachers.”

– Jonathan J. Reyes, Executive Director, of the Departement of Justice, Peace, and Human Development of the USCCB

Yet, in the midst of these trials, God was preparing Patrick to evangelize a nation.

Praise for The Trials of Saint Patrick

“The Trials of St. Patrick brings to life the heroic and holy witness of Ireland’s most beloved saint. I highly recommend this captivating audio series as an inspiration for all listeners!”
– Most Rev. Samuel J. Aquila, Archbishop, Archdiocese of Denver

“For those who are hungry to learn more about the amazing life of St. Patrick of Ireland and how God’s powerful grace worked through him to convert the obstinate pagans of his time, The Trials of St. Patrick will be sure to please and edify you. This dramatic portrayal shines a new light onto the life of a beloved saint, a life that has lingered in the shadows of mystery and legend for too long.”
– Rev. Francis J. Hoffman, Executive Director of Relevant Radio

“Dramatic, compelling, and sweeping, The Trials of Saint Patrick captures the power of the life and legacy of a saint whose real story is greatly beloved, but little known. With tremendous production values and talented voicing, this dramatization draws the listener into the life of a man who—though far from perfect—overcame adversity to find a true relationship with God and then gave the rest of his life to gift others with that same assurance of God’s unconditional love. Whether you’re a St. Patrick follower or simply someone in search of your own personal path to the divine, treat yourself to an exquisite adventure into the life of a saint whose legacy is even more relevant in today's world.”
– Lisa M. Hendey, author of The Secret of the Shamrock and founder of CatholicMom.com

“The Trials of Saint Patrick is radio theatre at its very best, taking us on a voyage into the Gaelic mists of the mystic west into the presence of one of the most enigmatic of all saints.”
– Joseph Pearce, Director of the Center for Faith and Culture, Aquinas College

 

This audio drama is outstanding! The acting is exceptional. We especially enjoyed the music, which added so much to the “feel” of the story. My wife and I listened to the program as we drove to work. Fortunately, the segments are perfectly timed for our ride—about 20–25 minutes. My wife took the pack to work with her to show a Catholic co-worker. A non-Catholic co-worker saw the package, and expressed interest. So now she has the discs and is enjoying them. St. Patrick’s evangelizing continues! Greg - Gainesville, FL

“I just watched this video and I am speechless yet had to say something, so, ‘Wow!’ The best I have ever seen in 50 years of ministry. Non pious, just real, and awesomely personal.” Joel in Rapid City, SD
I just watched 'Forgiven' on Formed. Oh. my. goodness. I wish I could share that video with my family. Seriously. My mom. Dad, sister. Aunts. Uncle. Anyone. Amazing. Amy, Buffalo, NY
I’m going to be late for work because I couldn’t stop watching session 3 on Forgiven. I thought the first episode was amazing but this one takes the cake! It not only touches on the head knowledge of confession but reaches the most important part, heart knowledge - knowing how much God loves us. Whoever was the cinematic genius who thought of the idea of having each priest recite part of the prayer of absolution I want you to know it brought me to tears. This is going to be an invaluable resource not only for our parishioners but also for those going through RCIA. Well done Augustine Institute. Well done!! Lisa Martin, St. Leo’s, Ridgway, PA
