A documentary film about Paulist Founder Isaac Hecker by Paulist Father Tom Gibbons. It features the vocal talents of Martin Sheen from the West Wing and the Departed, Matt McCoy from the Hand That Rocks the Cradle and LA Confidential, Bob Gunton from the Shawshank Redemption and The 33, and Jay O. Sanders from the movies JFK and The Day After Tomorrow. It also includes interviews from Cardinal Timothy Dolan from New York, Vatican spokesman Fr. Tom Rosica, as well as some of the top history and literature scholars from the University of Notre Dame and across the country.
Who else had strong acquaintances with such American luminaries as Henry David Thoreau, Ralph Waldo Emerson, and Louisa May Alcott... and then went on to start a religious community with the help of Pope Pius IX? Who else was associated with a Vatican condemnation… and then had his cause advanced for Sainthood?
