FREE Movies to watch during Holy Week

Spend a meaningful Holy Week, and get inspiration from the lives of Catholic Saints.  Here are 10 movies you can watch for FREE on YouTube. 


 

1. PADRE PIO: Padre Pio -Miracle Man (2000) ⁃ Italian mini-series (dubbed in English) on the life of Padre Pio.


   

2. BLESSED RUPERT MAYER: Father Rupert Mayer (2015) ⁃ a German priest put in a concentration camp for speaking against Nazism.



 

3. ST. BERNADETTE: The Song of Bernadette (1943) ⁃ Oscar winning film (including Best Actress for Jennifer Jones as Bernadette) about the life of Bernadette and Our Lady of Lourdes. Highly recommended. 


 

4. ST. JOHN VIANNEY: The Wizard of Heaven (Le Sorcier du Ciel) (1949) ⁃ French film (with English subtitles) on the life of the Cure of Ars.


 

 5. ST. THERESE OF LISIEUX: Miracle of St. Therese (1952) ⁃ Another French film (dubbed in English) on the life of the little flower saint in a semi-documentary style. Turn on the captions (CC) so that the subtitles appear. 


 

6. ST. JOSEPH OF CUPERTINO The Reluctant Saint (1962) ⁃ This Hollywood production stars Oscar winner Maximilian Schell as the “flying saint” who was not expected to accomplish much because he was slow intellectually. 


 

7. ST. LUCIA OF FATIMA: The Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima (1952) ⁃ A Holy Week classic of my pre-Netflix childhood, this Oscar nominated movie is still good viewing almost 70 years after it was first shown. 


 


   

 8. ST. POPE JOHN PAUL II Karol : A Man Who Became Pope (2005) & Karol: The Pope, The Man (2006) ⁃ A understandably Polish production, this is yet the most moving and most comprehensive film on the life of Pope John Paul II. The first movie ends with his election as Pope while the second ends with his death. Anchored by a moving performance by Piotr Adamczyk as Karol Wojtyla. 


 

 9. ST. MOTHER TERESA OF CALCUTTA: The Letters (2014) ⁃ Mother Teresa has been earnestly played by Geraldine Chaplin and Olivia Hussey in the past, yet this movie with Juliet Stevenson as Mother Teresa is, by far, the most profound production on the life of one of the most famous saints of contemporary times. 



 


   

10. ST. POPE JOHN XXIII The Good Pope: John XXIII ⁃ In his short stint as Pope, John XXIII influenced and set the tone for many of the progressive changes that the church undertook in the 60s. Bob Hoskins, a British actor, is an interesting choice as the Italian pope. Version below has 2 parts, commercials and ironically, Arabic subtitles. Turn the CC button on for English subtitles
