Saint Robert Southwell:
He was a devout Jesuit, a thoughtful poet, a zealous priest, a brave man. He gave his life willingly for the Catholic Faith in England during the Elizabethan persecutions of the Church. He suffered in the Tower of London yet his character and example was always one of joy, hope and love. He is one of the Forty Martyrs of England and Wales. In this film we take a journey with a priest who was once the most wanted man in England. Saint Robert Southwell was martyred in London by the British authorities simply for preaching a God of love and forgiveness, a Faith of Truth and hope, and for refusing to deny the priesthood that he served with all his heart.
