All For Her
Venerable Fr. Patrick Peyton's Life - the Famous "Rosary Priest"-
from Script to Screen
by Full of Grace Productions - Phase One
Father Patrick Peyton, C.S.C. (January 9, 1909 - June 3, 1992) was known all over the world as “The Rosary Priest” and is still remembered by his famous slogans “The Family That Prays Together Stays Together” and “A World at Prayer is a World at Peace.” After putting his trust in the power of the Intercession of Our Blessed Mother when he became gravely ill from tuberculosis while studying at Notre Dame University as a young seminarian, Father Patrick Peyton had a miraculous healing, and in gratitude, devoted his priestly vocation to strengthening family life by promoting the daily prayer of the Family Rosary.
Father Patrick Peyton started by preaching parish missions, then founded one of the longest running radio programs Family Theater of the Air where movie stars of the Golden Age of Hollywood donated their time and talents. Father Patrick Peyton’s mission came to full fruition when families pledged to recite the daily Family Rosary through Rosary Crusades and subsequent Rallies that touched the lives of over 28 million people throughout the world!
Full of Grace Productions, which hails from London, Ontario, Canada, where Father Patrick Peyton began his very First Rosary Crusade back in 1948, felt inspired and called to write a screenplay to be made into a Feature Film Production of Father Patrick Peyton’s 1967 Autobiography, All For Her - The Autobiography of Father Patrick Peyton, C.S.C. Through LifeFunder, we are launching Phase One of our vocation for this project; the research and writing of the screenplay, All For Her. Once completed, we will launch Phase Two through LifeFunder; the Feature Film Production/Promotion of All For Her, leading to an international release of the film.
Monies raised for Phase One will cover two full-time employees and day-to day-office expenses for two years, plus the research and scouting of film locations in parts of Ireland, the United States and Canada, and the writing of the screenplay.
Unlike other bio-pics, this will not be a documentary film, but a ‘Peyton-ly’ accurate Screenplay/Feature Film as told in Father Patrick Peyton’s own words in his autobiography: how he was given his great faith, a vocational 'calling' to the priesthood, and the tradition of reciting the daily Family Rosary by his family in Ireland; how he had the fulfillment of his vocational 'calling' to the priesthood and a miraculous healing while in the United States; and how London, Ontario, Canada, made his life’s work all possible by assisting him in his great mission on the ‘Rosary Path of Prayer’ to Sainthood that made him known around the world as the famous “Rosary Priest.”
Declared “Venerable” by Pope Francis on December 18, 2017, the Church affirms through evidence from the Congregation for the Causes of the Saints that Venerable Father Patrick Peyton has given us an example to follow of heroic virtue and holiness of life. During these times of trial and attacks on the family, we desperately need a real-life ‘Good News’ story told through the medium of film to help give a message of hope and love to all families, just as Venerable Father Patrick Peyton and the Rosary Crusades and Rallies touched the lives not only of Hollywood stars and moguls, but the hearts and souls of families from every faith denomination on every continent of the globe! This is one of the greatest love stories ever told - between a holy and humble priest and his Most Blessed Mother - and the simple but potent truth that when we put God and His Holy Will first place in our lives, miraculous things do happen and good fruits do stem from family prayer and the intercessory prayer of the greatest spiritual weapon of all ages against evil - the Most Holy Rosary of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
You and your support will play an important role in history by bringing this Divine and Providential story to life on the big screen! Full of Grace Productions is truly grateful for your gift and any monies that go over our Phase One needs will go towards Phase Two of our Campaign - the Feature Film Production/Promotion of All For Her. We would also appreciate your prayers as we continue our life’s work and mission and we are especially grateful for the blessing and kind support of members of the Peyton family for this project.
If anyone has had any personal contact with Venerable Father Patrick Peyton during his lifetime, we would love to hear from you. Please contact:
