This is the film so many are talking about. In 18 minutes Fishers of Men easily does what hours of apologetic talks on the priesthood and Catholicism struggle to do. This film has even convinced non-Catholics of the importance of the priesthood, and allowed many to understand for the first time what the Catholic priesthood is all about.
We believe that Fishers of Men is anointed and gives us a glimpse into God's intentions, and an understanding of why the Catholic Church is here to stay until Christ returns. Mankind cannot exist without the Church, and the Church cannot exist without her priests. This film beautifully and emotionally demonstrates what Christ meant when he proclaimed, "And the gates of hell shall not prevail against it [the Church]."
Fishers of Men was developed by the United States Conference of Bishops' Committee on Vocations. It is a film intended to renew priests' sense of fulfillment in their vocation and to encourage them to draw on that satisfaction to invite other men to pursue the priesthood. But it is likely to have a much broader and global affect on Catholics of all ilks and non-Catholics of every stripe.
Fishers of Men, produced by Grassroots Films of Brooklyn, NY, is a fast-paced, emotionally-charged video that reveals the many facets of a priest's daily life, and demonstrates why only real men can become priests.
