MESSENGER EAGLE COMMUNICATIONS LAUNCHES MESSENGER EAGLE 225 PROGRAM HONORING MARY, MOTHER OF GOD, AND THE INCEPTION OF THE ARCHDIOCESE OF BALTIMORE
Program Recognizes the 225th Anniversary of the Holy Roman Catholic in the Unites State
(Hunt Valley, MD) – Messenger Eagle Communications (MEC), a full-service, faith-based division within Renegade Communications, today announced it has launched its The 225 Program, developed to celebrate Mary, Mother of God, and the establishment of the Holy Roman Catholic Church in Unites States 225 year ago. MEC’s Messenger Eagle 225 Program will begin in “Mary’s month,” the month of May, and continue throughout the remainder of 2014, proving a unique opportunity for parishes to reinvigorate the faith of their parishioners, while raising much needed funds.
The Holy Roman Catholic Church first came to be when Pope Pius VI appointed Fr. John Carroll the first Catholic bishop in the United States in 1789, establishing Baltimore as the seat of the first diocese in our nation’s history. It is in honor of the inception of the Archdiocese of Baltimore 225 years ago that MEC developed and launched their The 225 Program. The program will hold 225 spiritual events featuring screenings of the award-winning documentary, The Blood & The Rose, to parishes all across the nation. Each spiritual event will serve as a mini retreat, communicating the Virgin Mary’s desire to raise up a new generation of “messenger eagles,” like Juan Diego, to spread the Good News for the conversion of our culture. Participants will be taken on a journey through the miracle that paved the way for the spread of Catholicism in the Americas.
“We are thrilled to have developed and launched our The 225 Program in order to celebrate Our Blessed Mother with various parishes throughout the country.” said Tim Watkins, President and CEO of Renegade Communications. “This program has the ability to reignite the fire of faith within, turning those who simply hear the message into a people committed to carrying the message into world under the guidance and protection of the Blessed Virgin Mary – Patroness of the Americas and Patroness of Life.”
The two-time Telly award winning documentary, The Blood & The Rose – directed by Timothy Watkins (In the Face of Evil), produced by Renegade Productions and Leo McWatkins Films and Steve McEveety (The Passion of the Christ), and narrated by Eduardo Verastegui (star of the movies Bellaand For Greater Glory) – tells the complete and remarkable story of the spread of Catholicism in the Americas as inspired by the miraculous appearance of the Virgin of Guadalupe to St. Juan Diego in 1531. The film was shot on location in Mexico and Spain, and offers riveting interviews with top experts in the fields of science, history and theology, exploring the mystery of St. Juan Diego’s tilma and the miraculous image that it bears. The film is truly a clarion call to deliver and carry on the message Our Lord delivered through the Blessed Virgin of Guadalupe, which calls out to and encourages each of us to raise up as the next generation of ‘messenger eagles’ and believers to answer the call to transform the modern culture, in which we live, with the Gospel of Life in imitation of St. Juan Diego. Additionally, the film has made two international appearances, one at World Youth Day in Rio de Janeiro in July 2013 and the other at The Da La Vida Conference on Madrid, Spain in March 2014.
