And thanks again to Fr. Miles Walsh (Our Lady of Mercy Church, Baton Rouge), as well as to our generous donors, for their support and encouragement!

Living Mercy: CatholicTV’s PSA Promoting Our National Premiere!

Diving Mercy Sunday is approaching, and we’re so pleased to be able to offer special programming in its honor.

Tune in this Sunday for our great Divine Mercy Sunday line-up, including the national premiere of Living Mercy, a moving documentary about the transformative power of devotion to Divine Mercy.

QuickHelp Productions: Support for Next Project!

Our Lady of Mercy Church pastor, Fr. Miles Walsh, who is featured in Living Mercy, has asked me to reserve some of the DVD proceeds to initiate new projects for QuickHelp Productions!   I’ve already outlined and registered my “treatment” on the WGA, and began making intial production calls today.  I will continue tomorrow and all this week to gather a working production crew! 
Several programs are on Louisiana‘s “real” local saints, blesseds and venerables.  Included in the working outline are:   Our Lady of Prompt Succor (our state’s patroness), Henriette Delille (foundress of the Holy Family Sisters), Bl. Francis Xavier Seelos (bringing relief to the sick  and suffering in post-Civil War New Orleans), St. Katherine Drexel (founding Xavier University/helping the poor), St. Mother Francis Cabrini (establishing schools), Bl. Pope JP II (Visit to NOLA) and Mother Teresa of Calcutta (establishing Baton Rouge convent). Included with the stories about recognizable saints will be stories of people thought to be saints-in-waiting.  The list must be “vetted,” however, before those names can be published.  Thanks for keeping us in prayer!

Living Mercy: Screenshots!

“Teaming with the FOCUS Worldwide Television Network to co-produce our documentary, Living Mercy, was a work of Our Lord’s Divine Mercy from the start! FOCUS staff members, Mary Salzer (Producer), Luke Burris (Editor) and Josh Johnson (Baton Rouge Seminarian and Host) transformed a simple project about the devotion to The Divine Mercy and its impact on a Louisiana Catholic Church into ‘something beautiful for God.’ We sincerely hope all who view our program will be blessed, as well as inspired by its universal message of Hope, Trust and Forgiveness!” – Connie Anderson, Producer-Writer, QuickHelp Productions
