Great Catholic Titles Available at Netflix

Netflix is, somewhat inadvertently, a part of the reason we started this blog. A lot of Catholic families have discovered that, in spite of the problematic stuff you'll find there (I wouldn't let your kids on the site!), there are many, many fine choices available for families and it can be a more reasonable and more flexible (not to mention more parent-driven) option for movie viewing than cable television. Here are a few films that you may be surprised to find there:

Steve Ray's Footprints of God Apologetics Series
G.K. Chesterton: Apostle of Common Sense Television Series (from EWTN - with Dale Ahlquist)
Pope John Paul II (Cary Elwes, Jon Voight)
Witness to Hope: The Life of Pope John Paul II
The Song of Bernadette
The Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima
Father Brown Television Series

I'm sure there are many others. What goodies have you found on Netflix?

I believe Netflix has just about anything that is available on DVD... I have found obscure things such as Ullman's Kristyn Lavransdatter-- sometimes it takes them a few extra days to get you the hard-to-find ones. I do love it-- and oh what great freedom from Blockbuster.

The new Padre Pio movie is there, too. I haven't seen it yet because there's such a qait for it, but Angela saw it this semester at TAC and said it was wonderful.
