A most inspiring internet video is drawing thousands back to the Catholic Church
APRIL 25, 2008 (www.CatholicsComeHome.org. ) - A commercial about the Catholic Church is inspiring thousands of people back to the fold. The commercial, "Epic" portrays the history, beauty, and spirituality of the Church that Jesus started 2,000 years ago.

The producer mentioned that "many people don't realize the history of the Church. They don't realize that Peter – the Apostle from the Bible – was the first Pope. They don't realize the vast accomplishments that the Church has made over the centuries."
"Epic" also effectively represents the universality of the Church. The clip shows a Mexican fiesta, an African Mass, a Tongan baptism, aid workers serving in a Vietnamese jungle, among other scenes.
The reaction to the video has been overwhelmingly positive. Viewers commented, "After seeing 'Epic', it made me proud to be Catholic." Priests have noted that the video made them feel "re-invigorated about their vocation." The video also has touched former Catholics who have said that the video showed the truth about the Church – "truth that they haven't seen in decades."
