News from around the Archdiocee of Liverpool


Catholic Faith Exploration (CaFE) have been producing TV-quality film courses on all aspects of the Faith since being launched by Cardinal Hume in 1996 and many parishes have run CaFE courses over the years.  A new course and book on Mary for parishes and individuals called ‘Let it be’ has recently been launched.


Cardinal Vincent Nichols is one of the experts who powerfully share about Mary's vital role in our discipleship today.  The inspiring travel journey through Mary's life past and present begins at the National Marian Shrine in Walsingham, where Monsignor John Armitage sets the scene, before the five-session series takes viewers to the wonders of the Holy Land filmed at all the key Marian sites. After that, the traditional place of Mary's older life in Ephesus is explored before visiting Rome, Montserrat near Barcelona, and Knock.  


A highlight is the beauty of Lourdes with filming of the Cardinal with his diocesan pilgrimage.


‘Let it be’ also features moving testimonies from Mary's Meals, ex-gangster John Pridmore and many others from around the country plus an interview with the Papal Preacher, Father Raniero Cantalamessa.


Cardinal Nichols says; ‘Mary’s “Let it be” was a clear, deliberate and definitive act: powerful, strong, free and life-giving.  It was Mary's commitment to the Word of God as the supreme value of her life which needs to be at the very core of our discipleship today.’


Director, David Payne, says; ‘The time is ripe for a fresh and inspiring film about Mary's life, her inspiring witness of faith and her powerful intercessory prayers.’
