"Thank you so much for producing the Saints Alive series as seen on EWTN. I love it and it has helped my faith... It has truly been a blessing for me. Thank you again."
- Kevin Burns, Massachusetts
"God bless you for your new series Saints Alive. I have watched almost all of the ones that have been aired on EWTN. They are all very beautiful and profound. Truly, you have captured the essence of all these saint's teachings and lives. St. John Vianney's presentation brought tears to my eyes. This series would be great to show to teenage youth groups at the parish level so follow up on their thoughts would help their group leaders determine where each teen needs help in their faith formation. The actors are superb; they certainly have captured the essence of each of these saints. Please pass along my gratitude to each of these actors."

"I just viewed the production filmed at the Basilica in Waterbury on Ewtn. The Saint from Ars was divine! I so enjoyed hearing him speak. His words were so beautiful and full of life. I live in Rhode Island but I grew up and I was educated in the greater Waterbury area. So you can understand my delight in seeing the production on EWTN this morning. I want to thank you for your work on this important project and the work you are doing through Arcadia. God Bless you Always,"

"This series is the best I have ever seen, expressing the truth, beauty and faith of our beloved saints.. it is so well done and has me completely captivated and utterly inspired. You have really captured the true essence of sainthood and how we can all aspire to sainthood ourselves."
- Mr. Michael Keil (via youtube)
"Your series "Saints Alive!" is a joy to watch. It reminds me to look to the Saints & be inspired! ... I'd like to suggest one very special Saint to be considered for your series. Her name is St. Faustina: The Apostle of Divine Mercy. Jesus revealed to her that the greater the sinner the more right he has to His Mercy and one sin He spoke to her about in particular was the sin of abortion. With abortion being one of the greatest social injustices of our time and with so many of us in need of God's Mercy because of our involvement in the sin of abortion, St. Faustina's message of God's Mercy & Love for sinful man is so needed today."

"Thank you all so very much for the wonderful series, Saints Alive. The first episode I came across was St. Theresa of Avila and was literally spellbound. I am a third order Carmelite and truly believe that it was God's Grace that made me turn on the TV which I rarely watch. The only channel worth watching is EWTN and your new series is a wonderful addition. I saw the interview with Fr. Mitch and loved hearing your story as to how this came about. Be sure of my prayers for your continued works. God Bless you."

"Dear Richard and Stephen,
Congratulations on the excellent work you've created in Saints Alive! ... The production values - camera work, sound, editing, etc - are excellent, and your actors served you well. It is a great pedagogical tool for the faithful, as well as a very entertaining series of snapshots of some heavy-duty saints. Bravo! ... I hope the series leads to many good things for you and Arcadia Films!
- Kevin Collins, New York, NY
"Bravo on a fabulous idea and a beautiful production! Would it be in bad taste to recommend another subject: one of the great saints and doctors of the Church, Alphonsus Liguori, also the patron saint of moralists, vocations, and arthritis sufferers...
God bless... "
- Bruce Crane, The Redemptorist Fathers & Brothers, Denver Province
"Greetings to my most favorite channel.
Thank you soooo much for giving us the program... "SAINTS ALIVE" it is the most wonderful ever ... no words can ever express how I feel about it. Just thinking if we can only talk to our favorite saints... and ask for advice. That is really incredible. THANK YOU SOOOO MUCH!!! As soon as my financial status is ok, I will surely donate. Im sooo sorry, that will be next year... hopefully I will still be employed.. by that time. I will try to donate this week... it may not be much... but it comes from my heart and soul. God bless you all!!!! Indeed God loves us soooo much...
Humble servant of Mother Mary,"

"I have waited with high interest for your new series saints alive. Boy was I blown away by the first two shows. My heart was filled with hope for our church in America and it came to my mind. Gods grace has in the past brought us people who inspired our faith and love for him by their art, music, and other mastery's of skill. I know in this time with all we have to live with, god has given you a tool to reach our hearts and teach us to find our way back to him. Thank you so much for this series, I look forward to watching the rest of your saints teach us."

"This morning I watched your Saints Alive program featuring St. Robert Bellarmine. I do not know how long this program has been on but it is the first that I have seen. It is excellent. It is a wonderful concept, which makes the understanding of specific Saints and of Church history and Doctrine more easily understandable. I believe it, along with your other programs, will also help me to better articulate the reasons for my Catholic faith.
Thank you very much."
- Thomas R. Tisa, Willow Springs, Il (via EWTN)
