Plot Synopsis:

In 1866, the Redemptorists received the miraculous icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help. When the icon was enshrined in their Church of St. Alphonsus in Rome, Pope Pius IX gave a command to the Redemptorists: "Make Our Mother of Perpetual Help known throughout the world." The Redemptorists have made it their mission to do just that. Written and filmed by Fr. Biju Madathikunnel, CSsR, the documentary Icon of Love: An Incredible Story of a Precious Image enables you to explore the legacy of one of the Church's most revered icons. The narrator, Michela Cascasi, explains the important impact the icon had on her family. Follow along on her search to find out more about the sacred Icon of Love--its history and tradition, its symbolism, its restoration, and the sacred art of iconography. The film also includes personal memories of the sacred icon from Saint Pope John Paul II during a visit to the actual shrine in Rome.
