Saints and Heroes Collection (1988-1995)

Links

Overview

Short episodes containing a summary of the life of each saint. Intended for children but also inspiring for devout adults: a treat for the whole family.

Review

This collection of kids movies are actually very accurate and faithful to the events and the spirit of each saint, except for the 1980s-style banter and jokes that necessarily had to find their way into each episode.

Caveats

Family friendly, but a few episodes have a few scary scenes which might be too much for young children. Parents or older siblings should review these scenes first:

  • Vision of Hell in the Fatima movie
  • Interrogation of children in Fatima movie
  • Crocodile scene in St. Francis Xavier movie
  • Nightmare scene in St. Patrick movie

Some movies I don’t recommend at all:

  • Guardian Angel movie is very bad
  • St. Nicholas movie is irreverent and strange
  • Columbus is not a Saint
  • The Odyssey is literally pagan mythology
