This Sunday, EWTN is airing “Miles Christi: Soldiers of Christ in America,” which has been four years in the making by StoryTel Foundation. It’s a one-hour documentary covering the Miles Christi order of priests and brothers. The film includes interviews with Cardinal Burke about Fr. John Hardon’s involvement and in-depth coverage of the formation these priests receive.
This is a rare inside look at an order many of us might not have heard of. They’re not a large order, and they’re relatively new, founded in 1994.
Miles Christi priests and brothers came to the United States with a couple of priests and $4000 and are now traveling all over the country, leading retreats and trying to revive the “desert” that they see here in the spirituality of Americans.
"More than ever we need soldiers, spiritually speaking, who will fight the good fight of faith," explains Father Patrick Wainwright, Miles Christi priest, on the documentary.
