I have worn my old VCR tapes out from using them for years. Guardian Angel for 1st grade, Patrick for 3rd, Francis for 4th, Francis Xavier for 5th, Sun Danced and Bernadette and Juan Diego when teaching different grades about the Rosary. Nicholas for Christmas for any age. So very happy to have them on DVD's.
I've loved these movies since they were out on VHS yep, that long, lol and I still enjoy watching them with my children throughout the year! Beautifully made and well written, these movies are a necessity for any Catholic home DVD collection.
