Explore the Legacy of the Icon of Love in Liguori’s Film Directed by Fr. Biju Madathikunnel

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 her known throughout the world!”

With Liguori’s latest film, Icon of Love: An Incredible Story of a Precious Image, filmmaker Fr. Biju Madathikunnel, CSsR, follows Pope Pius IX’s command by helping others understand more about this sacred icon. 

The writer and director of this film, Fr. Biju, hails from the Redemptorist Vice-Province of Liguori, India. In addition to being a filmmaker, he is also the inaugural director of the Office of Communications of the Redemptorists (which is in Rome), a photographer, a painter, and a writer. 

This film is narrated by Michela Cascasi, a Catholic wife and mother from Rome, whose family was greatly impacted by the icon. Follow her journey as she explores the legacy, history, tradition, symbolism and restoration of the precious Icon of Love, as well as the sacred art of iconography.

This 40-minute Blu-Ray disc explores why the icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help is so significant to the Redemptorists. Poignant interviews with Catholic leaders give viewers a glimpse into the history and importance of the icon from a personal perspective.

“This icon of the Mother of Perpetual Help gave a very clear focus to our preaching about Mary—to our devotion to Mary,” said Most Rev. Michael Brehl, CSsR, Superior General of the Redemptorists.

Other notable interviewees include Vincent Cardinal Nichols, Archbishop of Westminster, UK; Fr. Antonio Marrazzo, CSsR, Postulator General of the Redemptorists; and Fr. Juventius Andrade, CSsR, Consultor General and President of the Commission of Monica Sica, Rome.

This film also includes personal memories about the icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help from Saint John Paul II during a visit to the icon at the Church of St. Alphonsus in Rome.

Brother Dan Korn, CSsR, the author of Embracing the Icon of Love, has written a free Presenter's Guide that provides individuals and parishes with discussion questions to foster deeper appreciation and understanding of the icon. In addition, Liguori continues the Redemptorist tradition of making the Icon of Love known by providing you with materials to deepen your devotion to Our Mother of Perpetual Help.
