  1. Funtastic! 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 13th Sep 2016

    The videos are wonderful and the scenery is spectacular.
    I'm going to watch it several more times because it is packed with information that I've been learning about from my general research.
    It always helps to be able to remember something if I have a concrete picture to hang it on.
    Thanks Steve.

  2. Covers More than the Basics 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 28th Mar 2016

    This was an interesting way of learning the Catholic faith. It didn't just cover basic teachings but also the Typology and answered multiple questions that evangelicals use to attack the Catholics. I have lent my dvds to the others so they too can learn.

  3. ' Footprints of God ' Film Series 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 15th Dec 2015

    Based on how much background information on Bible history was covered in Steve Rays video on Peter, I want to see the rest of his series. I have to wait for Christmas, though, to see them. ( a gift I ordered for myself ) Also, having enjoyed ' Crossing the Tiber, ' and ' Upon This Rock,' I am looking forward to reading the added free gift offer of ' St. John's Gospel.'

  4. A suggestion to make my review fantastic instead of just great... 4 Star Review

    Posted by on 18th May 2015

    Hi Steve,

    I really like the DVD's (only through the first one, but it is great). My only suggestion is for you to include something to orient the person receiving these. I gave 2 box sets to my parents and in-laws - neither really understood the thematic connection of the DVD's. I purchased one for my wife and I - and I was even a little disoriented when I opened it.

    I heard you speaking of this DVD series on Catholic radio; the reason I purchased them was your description of the making of the series: taking you a decade to obtain the footage; it was the fruit of a long-time project. It required a great deal of personal effort and sacrifice; you were in 'harms way' - this was more than just a typical Hollywood video. All of those 'selling points' were lost in simply mailing the DVD's with advertisements for your pilgrimages.
    I would humbly suggest you include a letter including the following:

    1. The suggested order of viewing (I know you may laugh at people not knowing the order just from reading the titles, but I am certain it would help some)

    2. An insight into the making of these videos - similar to the things you stated on the radio interview. After my mother opened the package, she thought these were just your routine pilgrimage places - she was very surprised at 'the rest of the story'.

    3. A little info on this as a project that was conceived long ago, and because of time, wars, money etc... you are only now almost at the completion stage

    I think framing these wonderful videos with the 'story behind the story' would be a great asset (and, it may help you sell the next 2 in the series).

    Thanks for your great work and joyful representation of our Holy Catholic Faith!

    Greg

  5. Fun Learning The Faith 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 26th Apr 2015

    Such a fun way to learn more about our faith. The previous videos I ordered were loaned and circulated and never got back to me so I ordered a whole new set that I'll be sure to get my name and phone # on!!! I'm loaning them to my grand children's elementary school and I know they will love them.
