Blessed Bartolo Longo is becoming well known among Catholics today, especially after his Beatification by Pope Saint John Paul II in 1980 and the numerous references to this Apostle of the Rosary in the 2002 Encyclical Rosarium Virginis Mariae. An Italian lawyer, and former satanic priest, Bartolo gives us a striking and memorable example of Our Lady's powerful intercession for those who trust in her. His dramatic conversion from the occult, his rejection of Spiritism, and the search for his vocation in the Catholic Church finally saw him respond to Our Lady's call to build her a Temple. This Temple of Mary in Pompeii now welcomes nearly 4 million people a year and has been visited by three Popes. In it resides the miraculous painting of Our Lady of the Rosary of Pompeii which was given to Bartolo Longo. Bartolo left us many writings, prayers and foundations during his 85 years in service of the Church and Our Lady. This film explores his whole journey as well as the Temple of Mary and the Popes and people connected with this holy man of God. Mary's Dowry's unique film production style has been praised for not only presenting facts and biographical information but a prayerful and spiritual film experience.
