You are invited to the Premier Showing of
“Restless Heart - The Confessions of Augustine”
The “Confessions of St. Augustine” is one of the most important literary and spiritual classics in Western civilization. Now, through the medium of modern cinematography, the full splendor and power of the life story of Saint Augustine of Hippo (354 AD – 430 AD) – one of the greatest saints of the early Christian Church - is brought to the big screen.
Filmed in Europe, at a cost of $20 million dollars, “Restless Heart” uses a historic background to tell the true story of Augustine – one of Christianity’s most beloved and well-known Saints. Its message is as timely today as it was only a few generations after Jesus walked on Earth. It is the story of one who pursues fame and fortune without a moral compass – and the changes that occur when events lead him to see the light. It also chronicles the collapse of the Roman Empire and how Augustine laid the intellectual foundations of what was to become Europe.
The movie will be shown at the historic Lincoln Theater, 156 Lincoln Way E., in Downtown Massillon, on Tuesday, October 16th. At 12:00 noon, and again at 7:00 pm. Tickets are $5, $4 for seniors and $3 for high school students.
The premier showing of this epic film is being sponsored by two local non-profit charities: Saint Cecilia Classical Productions Inc, and the Pregnancy Support Center of Stark County. Net proceeds from ticket sales will benefit the pro-life efforts of these two organizations. There will also be a 50 /50 drawing just prior to the film showing Come and enjoy an entertaining afternoon or evening, while learning more about this important part of Christian history. The film is rated PG-13, and can be previewed at:

“We hope that many who watch this inspiring human drama will allow themselves to be found by the Truth and in return also find Love.”
Pope Benedict XVI
“Many generations of Catholics have turned to the Confessions of Saint Augustine for encouragement and sustenance in living as disciples of the Lord. Restless Heart invites even more people to discover the power of this spiritual classic. This film brings the words of the Confessions to life by enabling us to more fully understand the relationships and the culture that shaped Augustine, and to better grasp his talents and ambitions, sins and struggles and, ultimately, his sanctity. Restless Heart draws us to appreciate the magnitude and the totality of Augustine’s conversion of mind and heart. It invites us to consider how the Lord, whose merciful love is active in every time and place, is drawing us to give our own minds and hearts more completely to Him.”** Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I., Archbishop of Chicago**
