In preparation for the World Meeting of Families in Philadelphia, September 22 to 27, 2015, Salt + Light TV has produced a series of videos witnessing to how family life and the lives of the Blesseds and Saints are inter-related, with special importance for the Church as well as for today's families. Each presentation is approximately five minutes long, and provides a short biography on the life of each Saint or Blessed as well as a testimony to their journey of faith. To date, seven videos of the series are available in English on YouTube.
