Proving Holiness

Sainthood documentary to air on WNED-TV

"Proving Holiness," a privately funded documentary produced by Daybreak TV Productions of the Diocese of Buffalo, will air Monday, Dec. 3 at 9:30 p.m. on WNED-TV (Ch. 17) in Buffalo. The 60-minute program defines the canonization process through the stories of Monsignor Nelson Baker, Archbishop Oscar Romero, Blessed Kateri Tekakwitha and Saint Faustina.
Actor Martin Sheen narrates the documentary.

The founder of Baker Victory Services and Our Lady of Victory Basilica in Lackawanna, Father Baker's sainthood cause is being promoted by the Diocese of Buffalo. "It’s exciting that our community can experience the steps of canonization firsthand through the cause of Msgr. Nelson Baker," said Bishop Edward U. Kmiec, bishop of Buffalo. 'Proving Holiness' offers inspiration and a clear understanding of how sanctity is determined."

Following its airing on WNED, "Proving Holiness" will be made available to parishes, religious education programs and Catholic schools throughout the diocese. Plans also call for national and international distribution. www.buffalodiocese.org
