New Animated Catholic Film Inspires Catholic Youth to Live With Fearless Faith

cross-posted from A Catholic View

In an age increasingly resistant to faith, no one is more vulnerable to secular attacks than our children. Catholic Heroes of the Faith presents "The Story of Saint Perpetua", a riveting, true account of a young woman whose faith and eventual martyrdom has left a lasting impression throughout the centuries. This first episode of the new animated series will inspire Catholic youth to respond with fearless courage and unselfish love in the midst of a godless culture.

According to the review on the United States Catholic Council of Bishop's website, "This is an uplifting half-hour animated dramatization of the arrest, imprisonment and martyrdom of saints Perpetua, Felicity and their companions, in the North African city of Carthage circa 203 AD. Aimed at viewers eight and up, the hand-drawn cartoon adheres to the journal Perpetua kept in prison, and shows her pagan father's efforts to convince her to abandon the faith, her bold testimony during her trial and -- as recorded at the end of the journal by a follower -- her fortitude in the arena."
