The Second Vatican Council in Rome in its decree on communications (Inter Mirifica) said that "the Church believes that its task involves employing the means of social communication to announce the good news of salvation.” This blog is part of that process by the Diocese of Arundel & Brighton to communicate that same good news about Jesus Christ.

Story of a Lay Catholic Saint and Martyr
Saint Anne Line was executed at Tyburn in England on 27th February 1601. Her crime had been to shelter a Catholic priest. Her last words at the gallows confirmed her vocation to assist the hunted priests of Elizabethan England, when she declared that she wished she had sheltered a thousand. She died an English Martyr and remains a great witness to the Catholic Faith in England today.
In this new film from Mary's Dowry Productions, Saint Anne Line tells her own story over footage that portrays key events of her life and death, with Sacred Art and historical imagery. Encounter the spirituality, faith and virtue of a young English woman who sacrificed everything so as to help keep the Catholic Faith alive in England.
