Champions of Faith: The Bases of LifeProduct Code: DV1124
One of the most acclaimed and top-selling Catholic films in recent memory now has a sequel. On April 1, 2008, Champions of Faith: The Bases of Life will follow the multiple award-winning Champions of Faith: Baseball Edition onto DVD, providing an emotional and faith-filled look inside the personal lives of some of America's most beloved baseball heroes. The second film in Catholic Exchange's Champions of FaithTM series, The Bases of Life stars Mike Piazza, Darrell Miller, Tom Glavine, Jeff Suppan and others, and uncovers the true meaning of faith and God's message of love and forgiveness to mankind in a striking way. This stunning presentation of major sports stars' fidelity to prayer and the sacraments of the Church is like no other faith formation tool ever produced including the first Champions of FaithTM film. The Bases of Life is unique explained Tom Allen, the film's producer/director. We go inside the home and family lives of Mike Piazza and Darrell Miller. We go inside St. Andrew's and St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City even into the crypt where Archbishop Sheen and Cardinal Cooke are buried! We were given amazing access for this project and the result is a uniquely powerful film about how to live a truly Catholic life. In an age in which many sports heroes have fallen into disgrace, Champions of Faith: The Bases of Life brings the other side of sports to life by showcasing star players who are devoted to faith and family, Word and Sacrament. Aimed primarily at men and boys who hold these sports heroes in high esteem, the film takes a unique approach to highlighting the power and meaning of prayer, Reconciliation and the Eucharist, displaying the power of God in a way that people can understand and enjoy.
