$4,625 of $20,000 raised for Saint Maximilian Kolbe episode
Momenta Sacra (Latin for “holy moments”) is a short meditative film series highlighting some of the most significant moments in the lives of the Saints. Our hope is that their stories will lead you to a deeper yearning for prayer and inspire all of us to boldly live out our faith.
St. Maximilian’s story is one of the most well-known examples of Christ-like sacrifice in recent times. He was a Polish Franciscan priest imprisoned in Auschwitz at the start of the Holocaust in 1941. There, he volunteered to take the place of a fellow prisoner who was condemned to death. The man whose life he saved wanted to ensure that Kolbe’s heroic act be made known to the world; and we want to take part in that sharing. We’ll be exploring this incredible witness of Christian love—a light that pierces through one of humanity’s darkest moments. Help us bring this meditative piece to life by selecting one of our suggested donation values or any amount you feel called to give.
The lives of the saints have always been and will be important to GKCE. We know that their witnesses are some of the most powerful and by sharing their stories it's an opportunity for real conversion of the heart.
In recent years, we've seen the tides of our culture slipping away into spiritual darkness. Yet, our faith remains the only thing that brings true light and real hope to a darkened world.
We at GKCE believe that art and media have the singular, far-reaching ability to influence the culture at large. In just a few moments a beautiful work of art can touch the soul in a truly personal and life-changing way. It is with this in mind that Momenta Sacra was created. We plan to tell visually beautiful stories of how God used seemingly ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary things; many of whom changed history in the process.
The lives of the Saints are edifying. We pray that this series will encourage you and your faith life and help us all to live a more saintly life.
The potential for multiplying God’s reach through GKCE’s work is endless, and we are excited about the possibilities!
Our goal is to enlighten the hearts and minds of as many people as we are able to reach around the world with GKCE’s Momenta Sacra series. We are in ongoing discussions with Christian broadcasting platforms in the hope that we can televise Momenta Sacra episodes, similar to how we aired The Last Days and our Lenten Reflections on EWTN. Ultimately, we plan to make the series available for private programs at parishes and Christian organizations.

Gorgeous. I have read The Story of a Soul and this short film so remarkably ties it all together!
This was incredible. My heart leaped in my chest. I am so glad you put it on my feed. Now I can watch the others as well.
The beauty, heart and spirit in this project is so powerful! Cannot wait to see more.
Incredibly moving and powerful. Beautifully shot and the lighting is exceptional. Maria is a brilliant actress with voice of an angel. This series is going to be extraordinary and heaven-sent for a time like this.
