Patrick Peyton, CSC, believed a simple truth: the family that prays together stays together. As a child in Ireland, he learned the power of prayer as each night his family knelt together to recite the rosary. Patrick emigrated to the United States at the age of 19. While a seminarian, he experienced a miraculous cure from TB which allowed his ordination to the Congregation of Holy Cross and forged his lifelong commitment to Mary. His personal mission inspired the creation of Family Theater Productions with its more than 600 radio dramas and 60 television programs. Produced with the help of Hollywood stars of all faiths, these programs have touched thousands of families worldwide while Father Peyton's Rosary Crusades have exerted an amazing impact in forty countries on six continents, calling millions to prayer.
Narrated by actress Loretta Young, this documentary includes footage of Father Peyton's early life, his radio and TV programs, appearances with Hollywood stars, and excerpts from sermons.
