Let it Be: New Film on Mary

By David Payne

Catholic Faith Exploration (CaFE) have produced a TV-quality filmed course and book on Mary called ‘Let It Be’ for parishes, groups and individuals. Cardinal Vincent Nichols is one of the experts interviewed for the film about Mary's vital role in our journey of faith today.

The journey through Mary's life past and present begins at our National Marian Shrine in Walsingham, where Monsignor John Armitage sets the scene, before the film takes the viewers to the Holy Land where the film takes in all the key Marian sites. After that, the traditional place of Mary's older life in Ephesus is explored before visiting Rome, Montserrat near Barcelona, and Knock.

One of the highlights is the beauty of Lourdes filmed during the Westminster pilgrimage and including an extended interview with Fr Stephen Wang. Let It Be also features moving testimonies from Mary's Meals, ex-gangster John Pridmore and many others from around the UK plus an interview with Papal Preacher Fr Raniero Cantalamessa.

Full details of the five session film and book plus a short trailer are available at or by calling CaFE on 0845 050 9429.
