Studio Katolik is a multimedia studio and publishing house operating in Poland since 2000, and the creators of the documentary - Become Great before God.

Father Francis Mary of the Cross Jordan, founder of the Salvatorians had a vision: that every person may know and love Jesus Christ, the Savior of the world. Father Jordan wanted to use all possible and decent means and tools to reach as many people as possible with the Gospel. Studio Katolik wanted the same.

On the 100th anniversary of Francis Jordan's death, the studio made a documentary entitled "Become Great before God."  In the film's story, Fr. Joe Rodrigues, SDS, is following in the footsteps of Fr. Jordan. He discovers various and unknown threads in the life of a modest priest who wanted to found the Society of the Divine Savior and whose vision (charism) remains valid to this day.

On May 15, 2021, we witnessed a joyful and historical celebration: Francis Jordan was beatified in the Lateran Basilica in Rome, Italy.

The Year of Jordan began on July 21, 2021. This year is an excellent opportunity to thank God and get to know the founder of the Salvatorian Family better. Studio Katolik, together with Fr. Joe Rodrigues, SDS, prepared short films presenting various threads of the movie "Be great before God," we will share a new one each month and invite you to watch and share them.

The goal was to present Blessed Jordan's life honestly and in a way that would appeal to many people around the world. 

The entire film can be purchased at: www.FatherJordan.com and support our further work on the next part of the documentary film about Blessed Francis Jordan.
