John Bird Rest in Peace

Dear Friends:

It is with great sadness that I inform you that my good friend John Bird died yesterday while on a visit to Garabandal, Spain site of the the Blessed Mother's appearances & messages  to four children from 1961-65.  John had not been feeling well recently and passed away peacefully during the early morning hours on March 7.  John was accompanied by his cousin Justin Bird to Garabandal and will be buried in Garabandal today.

As you may know, John was a giant in his service to almighty God, an expert on church history, all things Marian, a lecturer, publisher of books and creator of numerous extremely informative and beautiful catholic documentary films with particular emphasis on our Blessed Mother. John was for many years a senior executive with 20th Century Fox Films and Paramount Pictures where he worked producing many major motion pictures.  He also produced a number of films for television with English & European broadcasters including the BBC.  However, during the mid 1980s after a visit to Lourdes in France that John turned his attention full time to the service of Jesus, Mary, and the Church.

I have had the great privledge of knowing John as a friend and working with him on a number of film projects over almost 30 years.  To say I will miss his counsel and friendship is a great understatement and I am sure those of you who knew John will feel the same.  Please pray for John and if so inclined please make a contribution of any size to either a Marian center or Pro Life group. 

Mary's Media Foundation's very first project in 1989-90 was helping John get his film "Madonna of Medjugorje" on TV nationally via PBS where with help from above it ran for many years throughout the U.S.  We will continue to promote John's films which are now classics including Hill of Redemption, Eternal City, Vision of Freedom, Eldest Daughter of the Church, White Dove of Peace, Vision of Freedom,  Rock of Truth, River of Light.

Rest in Peace John Bird-Your wonderful work is done!!

The Eldest Daughter of the Church
The Eldest Daughter of
			 the Church Almost five hours of viewing on three DVDs.

Complete film available in DVD.
Individual parts only available in VHS.

The Eldest Daughter of the Church is filmed on location in France and Rome. Superb cinematography, haunting, inspirational, classical music, and a wonderfully narrated story of the spiritual destiny of France, all go to make this an exceptionally beautiful film.

Heart of the Lily: The story of Mary Magdalen's journey to Provence in southern France, and how the seed which she and the early disciples left in Roman Gaul blossomed into a garden of saints and Churches, most notable in the Abbey town of Paray-le-Monial where Jesus revealed the treasure of His Sacred Heart to St. Margaret Mary Alacoque.

Where the World Begins: How France in the last hundred years has been called to fulfill her destiny as the Eldest Daughter of the Church, and reveals how posterity will one day see that her greatness is remembered not so much through the accomplishments of temporal leaders, but in the heroism of her saints and victim sours of love who suffered so much to expiate for the apostasy of the nation as a whole.

Part I The Eldest Daughter 59 Minutes

Part II Sun of Justice 59 Minutes

Part III Hope Springs Eternal 85 Minutes

Part IV Triumph of the Cross 85 Minutes

Full Set All 4 Eldest Daughter of the Church videos   $45.00

The White Dove of Peace

Those who died in England in defense of the Truth and for their faith at the time of the Reformation and beyond, were regarded by their contemporaries as the equal of those martyred in the early persecutions of the Church, and that they like them were worthy of veneration and cult.

That a great nation like England, should have given to the world, and to history, a witness so uncompromising, serene and heroic, is a fact which should fill the students of history with admiration, reminding them that this 'Isle of Saints' gave to posterity so many who loved so generously and so selflessly.

River of Light

Filmed on location in Spain, Portugal, U.S. and Mexico. A compelling journey in time, through the vast landscape of Catholic Spain, Portugal, and Mexico.

River of Light is a pilgrimage through time; through the age of the Romans and the kingdoms of the Visigoths; through the days of persecution when Churches and places of worship were destroyed, but were later rebuilt and restored; and through the centuries of resilience which it took to make this country a unified kingdom, in which the rewards are so precious because they were so hard won.

Spain was also a country predestined by God to conquer and evangelise the new world which in time would mirror the mother country from which it was born.

The Rock of Truth

Filmed on location in Rome, Cyprus and Palestine.
55 minutes.

The Rock of Truth reveals the extraordinary story of a man who, in his younger days, was an active militant communist, a trolley bus-conductor, a fundamentalist religious zealot who sought to kill a pope, and a modern day persecutor of the Catholic Church, who then had a miraculous conversion, at a place close to the site of the martyrdom of one of the very first persecutors of the Church, "St. Paul whose miraculous conversion on the road to Damascus inspired him to bring Christ to the peoples of the Roman Empire."

Bruno Cornacchiola had come to Tre Fontane to make some notes for a speech he was to give the following day, in which he would denounce the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Little did he realize how close he was to the One he sought to discredit, for that same afternoon She was to appear to him and his children in a cave on the hillside there.
