We need the story of Father Patrick Peyton in 2020 to inspire us to return to daily prayer of the rosary. Father Willy Raymond and Father David Guffey became lifelong friends when I came to them in 2010 and asked them to pray with me for a foundation I was launching to Bring Hollywood Home. They took me into Family Theater Productions in Hollywood and invited me to speak about the need to fight for jobs, family friendly film and TV, funding for independent productions, greater fairness in distributions of tax credit incentives. Without prayer and the friendship of Family Theater Theater and these wonderful priests I could not have accomplishments 10 years of advocating for children to become a priority for the industry as I spoke out about the harmful influence of Los Angeles pornography films and the violence and hopelessness Hollywood was becoming a leader in moving away from the days of Father Patrick Peyton to a darkness of human trafficking. Watching PRAY my heart is ignited to win Hollywood back to a TV and film industry that will honor the work of now Venerable Father Patrick Peyton. I urge everyone to support this film and it’s message “a family that prays together stays together.” Like Father Peyton I found the power of prayer and the leadership of friends and family Diane Ladd, Bill Duke, Edward James Olmos, Jessica Jimenez Perry, Anna Jimenez Lyle, Yuri Jimenez, Claire Mansour, Paul Cummins, Mike Butler, Jose Rojas, Tracy Saunders, Martin and Dahlia Guigui, Jonathan Sheldon, Jane Sheldon, Deborah and Garry Hobday, Bill Mundell, Jerome and Yvonne Horton, Ron and Ana Calderon, Jan Tucker, Jerry Heller, Lydia Grant, Kevin James, Terri Thomas, Gary Visconti, Charles Jimenez, and most importantly the rosary helped me to have the courage to advocate for families. Jack Mansour, I will spread the word to see Pray. What a wonderful gift in this Advent season feeling the power of Mary and Jesus.
This movie is a 5 +. It reveals the absolutely simple message powerfully proclaimed by this humble servant of God, Father Patrick Peyton. Nothing could hold him back...without fear and certainly without pride or ego he went wherever he was led by the Holy Spirit to proclaim the need for us to pray to God, to beg for the intercession of our Holy Mother. The loving bond that families who pray together can achieve will make you hunger to go forward and share this message. The movie is extremely well done; will make you smile and leave you in tears.
Such an inspiring film about an amazing man and priest who dedicated his life to sharing the power of prayer! A must see for families and those looking to be entertained and engaged in the life and works of a saint to be, Father Peyton.
