Mercy Unbound - Divine Inspiration: A Filmmaker's Journey to Faith and Service

Michael McGlinn, an accomplished film producer, musician, and founder of Sistine Films, pursued his passion for creativity and music after attending Notre Dame University, where he also played football under the legendary coach Lou Holtz.

Spiritual Awakening and Deepening

In 2012, during a documentary project in the Holy Land, he had a profound spiritual experience at Calvary and the tomb of the Holy Sepulchre on the Feast of the Sacred Heart, marking a pivotal "Divine Mercy" moment in his life. As his faith deepened, he regularly attended Eucharistic Adoration at a local chapel, fostering a profound love for the Eucharistic Lord.

Support for Mercy Collaborations and Initiatives

Through his work, he crossed paths with Sister Andrea, a Franciscan nun who managed a vast warehouse collecting supplies for impoverished people worldwide. Upon her retirement, she entrusted the facility to Project Cure. Collaborating with the Congregation of Marians, Michael is currently finalizing a documentary on their joint efforts in Ukraine, where funds raised are aiding those affected by the ongoing conflict.

Nurse Marie Romagnano, founder of Healthcare Professionals for Divine Mercy and a trauma nurse, has played a crucial role in supporting mercy initiatives to aid innocent victims of war.

Michael considers himself blessed to utilize his talents and passion for the Church in contributing to the advancement of God's Kingdom. He and his wife Beth live with their children in Kansas City, Missouri.
