Missy D’Aconti (http://www.faithlifefamilywear.com) began the program with an overview of what will be discussed on Episode 11 including the three (3) movies produced/directed by Jim Morlino (Jim):
“How to Make a Movie”
“St. Bernadette of Lourdes”
“War of the Vendee” – Best Film Awards
These films are good quality entertainment. Can and must be seen by everyone! Navis Pictures only uses children actors with an occasional cameo by Jim.
Missy then introduced Jim asking him to share some brief background information, but first Jim prayed the prayer that they say while “on (movie) set”. #AlwaysBeginWithPrayer
Jim was a native of Southern California and graduated from UCSD (University of California San Diego) with a Masters in Drama. Jim was an actor and musician who did the New York Circuit (i.e. Broadway etc.) before returning to California to be behind the camera. Jim is married with 6 children. #RoadToTheMovieIndustry
Jim knew that he wanted to make movies with all children actors. His daughter wrote a 20 minute script called “Red Wall”. Prior to this, he and his children made small inter-family vignettes. Along the way, they made a Catholic version of “Robin Hood” and showed their product to neighborhood families in which the “moms” of the children actors were weeping in happiness. #SmallButMighty
Jim lives in a community of Catholic “Home School” family’s. They all believe, including Missy, this helps extend the innocence of children. #CatholicHomeSchooling
Jim did mention that if he had all the money and time in the world, he would bring this “all children actors” movie making to every community in the Nation. #AllChildrenActors
A priority of Jim’s is to assist in bringing about more “Catholic” Actors. We need more of these people to help make more “beautiful” movies. “The World Needs It, God Deserves It”, states Jim. #CatholicActors
Ken Davis, founder of “Holy Heroes” and “Glory Stories” suggested to Jim that he make a movie about Bernadette of Lourdes. Of course, Jim moved forward with this suggestion and the movie “St. Bernadette of Lourdes” was born. A clip of the movie was shown. A “Fantastic” comment was stated by Missy followed by other approval thoughts in the Chat Room. Finally, Missy asked Jim about the “devil scene” in the movie, fact or fiction. Jim mention it is a fact. St. Bernadette actually heard “bad” voices during her apparitions. A small discussion was had about the movie’s ending, including the dying of St. Bernadette. #StBernadetteOfLourdesTheMovie
Jim mentioned that all his “work” is done “Through Mary, To Jesus” as stated by St. Louis DeMontfort.
A conversation was then had about Hollywood. Jim stated that Hollywood is “turning away from God”. Jim also stated that we need to provide writers with a “slice of life infused with the Catholic Faith”. “We need to bring back the Hays Code”, stated Jim. These “moral guidelines” must be brought back to the forefront of movie making. If we look back when the Hays Code was prevalent, great movies were produced such as “The Kill A Mockingbird”, “Wizard of Oz”, etc. This is why this time period was called the “Golden Age”. #BringBackTheHaysCodeToHollywood
A conversation then began about the movie “War on the Vendee”, a story of a war not known by many. The movie was set in the time of Louis XVI and Marie Antoinette wherein there was French Genocide. Actually, 250K people were massacred in the French Countryside. Because of this, people defending the Church and Priests, formed an Army. Their uniform actually had Jesus’ Sacred Heart on their breast. This Army conquered the folks who had massacred their people. Napoleon stated that if “they (Blancs) continued on to Paris, “Catholic” France would have been restored”. #UnknownButLifeChangingWar
Along with winning many awards, this film was scored by Kevin Caska, a “high profile” Hollywood Score Writer. Caska utilized “A-List” Hollywood musicians. Missy commented that the “soundtrack” of this movie was wonderful. CD of the soundtrack is available on the website. (http://www.NavisPictures.com) #CheckOutTheSoundtrack
Jim gave Missy a 50% “Discount” code that the audience could utilize for shopping on the website. The code is MISSY.
This episode ended with the recitation of the Hail Mary.
Synopsis Completed by Normand HJ Robert
with Fr. Donald Calloway, MIC (http://www.fathercalloway.com)
“If I had an army to say the Rosary, I could conquer the world.” – Blessed Pope Pius IX
Missy asked Fr. Calloway to begin this Episode with a prayer.
After a quick introduction by Missy, Fr. Calloway was formally introduced and asked to speak on his new book, Champions of the Rosary: The History and Heroes of a Spiritual Weapon. #championsoftherosary
This book took 2.5 years to write and contains 455 pages. It contains tons of Saints, Blessed’s, etc. Among many of the 60+ endorsements, this book has been endorsed 30 Bishops and 4 Cardinals. #saintlyendorsements
In order to combat heresy, the Rosary was the spiritual weapon of choice with a sword being that weapon of choice. #rosaryweaponofchoice
Fr. Calloway talked about a Nigerian Bishop (Oliver Dashe Doeme) who told Fr. Calloway that “he would cherish this book for the rest of his life”. He also advised Fr. Calloway that he was before the Blessed Sacrament when the Lord appeared to him. During this appearance, the Bishop was being handed a sword by the Lord. Hesitant, but the Bishop reached out to grab the sword. As soon as he received the sword, it turned into a Rosary. Jesus then told him 3 times, “Boko Haram is gone”! Bishop Oliver knew at that point that he needed to spread the news on the power of the Rosary. #thisbattlemustbewon
Fr. Calloway’s new book includes many battles that were won due to the Rosary being the “weapon” of choice, a spiritual weapon at that!
The conversation then turned to “Who Founded the Rosary”. Fr. Calloway stated that St. Dominic in 1208 brought forth the Rosary. St. Dominic then authored several encyclicals. #St.DominictheRosarySaint
Several other Saints have enhanced the Rosary’s History such as St. Louis de Montfort who actually wrote a book on the Rosary.
Fr. Calloway also mentioned that the new book includes “tons” of miracles including a miracle wherein one of Ted Bundy’s victims was spared because she had a Rosary in her hand. #miraclesoftheRosary
It was mentioned that Pope Leo XIII was known as the “Rosary Pope”. He actually wrote 11 encyclicals.
Fr. Calloway then mentioned that due to the state of the world today, we must pray the Luminous Mysteries. For example, the Wedding at Cana proves that marriage is between a Man and a woman. #praytheluminousmysteries
Missy exclaimed to Father Calloway on how she loved the cover of his new book. Father then began to explain the origin of the shield on the front of the book. #protectionoftheshield
Shirts, prayer cards, and other items will be made focusing on the “Shield”.
Also included in the new book will be the “26 Champions of the Rosary”. It will begin with St. Dominic and have such people like Frank Duff and Fr. Patrick Peyton included. #championsoftheRosary
Fr. Calloway stated that he has commissioned artwork to accompany the new book.
Lastly, Pre-Orders for the new book will begin mid-July (http://www.fathercalloway.com). Actual release date is scheduled for August 8, 2016.
Evil was so prevalent during Fr. Calloway’s journey, that he actual had several USB’s made and distributed to several friends and colleagues in the event he died.
Once again the Chat Room was busy with comments and questions but unfortunately due to technical issues (brought on by evil?) no phone calls were taken. #poweroftherosaryoverevil
As you all watch this episode, please check out the “bright” light behind Fr. Calloway. An Angel with wings? Look at that light illuminating the Cross!
Join us LIVE Thursday nights at 9pm EST http://www.fiatministrynetwork.tv/live
Gloria, Lavs, et Honor, Tibi Sit Rex Christe Redemptor (Latin for “Glory, Praise and Honor to Thee, O King, Christ, the Redeemer) – 1962 Daily Missal
Missy began this Episode by explaining that May 26th is the actual day for the Corpus Christi Celebration but it is celebrated on the Sunday following in order for more faithful to attend. #FeastofCorpusChristi
The “Love It” portion of this Blessed Sacrament Episode could be best related to Eucharistic Miracles. Missy talked about the earliest known Eucharistic Miracle which was in Lanciano, Italy in the 8th Century. Since then, there has been many other instances of Eucharistic Miracles. #EucharisticMiracles #EucharisticProcession
Next, Missy spoke about the “Protect It” portion of this Blessed Sacrament Episode but giving several examples of Eucharistic Abuses. We must not let these Abuses happen! We must Show Our Love and Protect Him. “It may not be MY Business” is said by many faithful. But, wait a minute, IT IS! #EucharisticAbuses
Many of the following Abuse examples can be avoided by proper education of Extraordinary Ministers (Eucharistic Ministers) by a Priest or by a Senior Minister. A simple item to ensure protection of Jesus, is to ensure the Priest/Deacon Purifies all the Vessels used during the Mass. #TeachtheMinisters #PurifytheVessels
While Missy and her family were visiting a Shrine, it was noticed that too much Precious Blood had been consecrated. Seeing no final purification of the Precious Blood, Missy asked what happens to the Precious Blood that had not been consumed. She was told that they “have a special sink” (Sacrarium Sink) where pour the remaining Precious Blood. Are you kidding me! All Precious Blood MUST BE CONSUMED. A Sacrarium Sink is only used for the leftover water that was used to wash the Precious Blood that had spilled on linen. #DrinkAllThePreciousBlood
We must want the complete “Fullness of Faith”. Not just a portion, we want the “whole” pie! Rules were for the Blessed Sacrament were recently reiterated by Pope Benedict. Have an Immediate meeting with your ministers to ensure they all know the rules! #KnowtheRules
Another “Abuse” example was when Missy and her Family were on vacation in the South. Once again, there was an over pouring of the Precious Blood. Missy and her family kept their eye open as to what was going to happen with the remaining Precious Blood. Normally the family only receives Holy Communion from a priest but ended up receiving the Body of Christ from a woman minister. After Mass, having a gut feeling about the remaining Precious Blood, they hung around and prayed. The Minister who gave the family Holy Communion came over to the family. She stated how impressed she was with their actions before, during, and after Mass. Still no resolution to the remaining Precious Blood. Seeing a man holding palms walking into Church, Missy approached him asking where the priest was. Man didn’t know but explained that he was the “Head” Minister. She then asked him what happens with the remaining Precious Blood. He stated that they use that “special” sink again. Man became defensive but Missy continued to kindly educate him. This opened the door. He also stated that they find “hosts” all over the place. What? Because of this Church being a “tourist” Church, this seemed normal to him. Man said that they bury the hosts in the garden. REMEMBER, the Precious Body & Blood MUST be consumed. Only 1st Class Relics should be buried. #consumetheconsecrated
Additionally, the family were attending Mass at a Nursing Home when a consecrated host fell on the floor. The Priest picked it up but DID NOT consume it. Nobody washed the spot where the host had fell. People continued to walk all over the spot. After Mass, the family obtained some Holy Water and washed the entire floor. That is Protecting Our Lord! #DroporSpillBlessedSacramentWashtheFloor
Again an example of ministers not being trained, a homebound minister, also a member of a Rosary Group, was supposed to bring the Blessed Sacrament to a woman but had some sort of problem and could not bring the consecrated host to her. Well, He Mailed It to Her! WHAT! Speechless! The woman who received it, was horrified! #nevermailJesus
The Chat Room was busy and had a few questions. Missy then advised that the Fiat Ministry Network was being attacked by evil. She, Kent, and Normand had been sick.
Remember, as Al Smith reminded us, We are What We Eat — Act Like it!
The episode ended in the praying of the Eucharistic Prayer given at Fatima by the Angel! #PrayAlways
“Do not be Afraid. Go on speaking, and Do Not Be Silent, for I am with you …” (Acts 18:9)
Missy began this Episode by introducing Leslie (http://www.silentnomore.com/richmond) and in turn Leslie gave her background information. She is the VA Co-Coordinator of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign. #silentnomore She is also the Organizer of the VA #ProtestPP.
Leslie, a former Radio & TV Personality, began explaining her reversion to the Catholic Faith. She continues to struggle with her faith journey, as we do each day. Her current love affair with Jesus is wonderful! #ILoveJesus
This wonderfulness was not always the case. In college, she lived the life of a “wild” college student. Alcohol, Drugs, Pre-Marital Sex etc. Leslie was even humble enough to share that she had 2 abortions in the early stages of her life. She also stated that in the height of her professional career, she was a Pro-Choice Zealot and a Planned Parenthood Board Member. Her family life was in an uproar and was practicing self sabotaging behavior. Her St. Paul Moment was when she lost her Dad. It was devastating! This suffering resulted in 4 months of self sequester. #savemysoul
She thought that a move from North Carolina to Richmond would assist her in “getting out of this rut”. But she still ventured into what she knew, alcohol, drugs, cigarettes, and looking into other Faiths while working at “high” profile job, “Good Morning” Richmond. #rockbottom
Finally, with marrying the man of her dreams, becoming a mother with the birth of her son and daughter, the assistance of her Aunt Betty, she completed her reversion back to the Catholic Church. Oh by the way, Jesus helped in this reversion! #houndfromheaven #thetruthwillsetyoufree
As a footnote, Aunt Betty had “deep” faith in the Catholic Church. She was a Mom twelve times, so definitely a women with great Family experience. This experience along with one-on-one talks with Leslie, surely “finalized” this reversion. #thegreatauntbetty
Lastly, a video (no audio) was played showing Leslie in front of the U.S. Supreme Court speaking during the National March for Life. #marchforlife
