Throughout history, humanity has been enthralled by the idea of Heroes. From Hercules to Superman, the heroic narrative in literature, the arts and culture has been passed from one generation to the next. But heroism is not some unattainable ideal. It is not reserved for only mythology. Heroism is a worthy goal that lies within the grasp of all of us.
That is the central message of Everyday Heroes, a documentary film featuring the witnesses of twelve remarkable contemporary Catholic men, young and old, whose courage, faith and charity are deeply inspiring. From the college football star who selflessly put the needs of others before his own, to the US army soldier who puts himself in harm’s way for his fellow soldiers and country, and the Special Olympics athlete who gives witness to the dignity of all human life---these stories demonstrate how the betterment of our world ultimately begins with the individual human heart.
