Fr. Aloysius Ellacuria, CMF: The Angel of Biscay

catholicstudio — April 12, 2010 — He is called to be a vessel for Christ through a life steeped in prayer and sacred Scripture.
He is consecrated to preach the Gospel, shepherd the faithful and celebrate Divine worship.
The example of his holiness will make him shine like a star and in so doing win souls for the Kingdom of Heaven.
Now, more than ever, the world needs HOLY PRIESTS - living examples of true faith in action....

In a time of World upheaval God raised up an extraordinary priest. So completely did he sacrifice his will in the service of God and neighbour that blessings were showered upon him in abundance. His sanctity was confirmed by miracles. But, suffering became his companion, and dark nights he humbly endured.

This 75 minute film tells the amazing story of Fr Aloysius Ellacuria CMF and traces his life journey from his Basque home. Filmed on location in Spain, Portugal, Mexico and the United States we trace the amazing life of a man who gave up his life in the service of others and in so doing was abundantly blessed with rare spiritual gifts.

Filmed on location, the film illustrates the character, mission and spirituality of a truly remarkable priest who changed the lives of so many.

Mary, Mother of Jesus Christ, Eternal High Priest, Mother of all priests and our Mother, help us respond generously to the Holy Spirit's request, through the voice of His Church, to offer up to God Eucharistic adoration for priests. Amen.
