Bl. James Alberione, founder of the Daughters of St. Paul, on cinema


Bl. James Alberione (1884-1971) believed in the power of the media to communicate God's Word and a culture of peace

“We need to put down the scissors of censorship and pick up the camera” because “the power of the cinema surpasses that of the school, the pulpit, and the press and always produces greater results.”

These are the words of Blessed James Alberione, who initiated his apostolate of the cinema and film activity on March 18, 1938.
