How odd...

Next month there will be a screening of The Young Messiah, hosted by Ignatius Press, MOTIVE Entertainment, Ocean Blue Entertainment, 1492 Pictures and CJ Entertainment. Why is Ignatius Press giving support to a movie based on the novel of Anne Rice (and her use of gnostic sources, among others)?


Remaining true to the character of Jesus revealed in the Bible, The Young Messiah is an inspirational story for the whole family about the childhood of the Savior.

When the mystery of Jesus’ divinity begins to unfold in His childhood, He turns to His parents for guidance. But Mary and Joseph, in an effort to protect their child, are afraid to reveal all they know. How do you explain the ways of the world to the Creator of the world? How do you teach the Teacher? How do you help the Savior who came to save you?

Follow the young Messiah as He and His family take the dangerous journey from Egypt to Nazareth and on to Jerusalem, where His true identity and profound destiny is fulfilled.

What people are saying about THE YOUNG MESSIAH:

"This film will be great for my imagination for many weeks and many months to come...What was really important and well-done was the way that faith is challenged in very complex situations, but at times there is a clarity that shines through and a simplicity of the faith that is just inspiring and leaves you with a sense that God enters into this violent world and brings something very different." - Bishop Thomas Olmsted, Diocese of Phoenix

"Captivating, inspiring, deeply moving." -Cardinal Sean P. O'Malley, OFM Cap., Boston

“Beautiful film with a compelling story. It is sure to be a classic for families for years to come.” - Rev. David L. Guffey, CSC, Family Theater Productions

"Engaging, tender...fall in love with Jesus Christ all over again." -Lisa Hendey, Founder & Editor, CatholicMom.com

The Latin overemphasis on the humanity of Christ?
