Rooted in Love

Produced, Written and Directed by Gerry Straub

RootedInLoveRooted in Love will take you on a memorable journey…ten inspirational days in Honduras with five extraordinary women quietly doing heroic work on behalf of forgotten people living in extreme poverty on the periphery of life in a country scarred by violence. The women are members of the Medical Missionaries of Mary, a religious congregation of sisters, many of whom are doctors and nurses. Based in Ireland, the MMM sisters serve the medical needs of people in 14 nations, with a special emphasis on women and children.

Based on the criteria of deaths per capita, Honduras is the most violent nation on earth. Sadly, far too often, poverty is a death sentence. Nonetheless, the sisters of the Medical Missionaries of Mary are walking with the poor. They are a healing presence giving the poor the tools they need for a better life. Rooted in Love will look at their noble and heroic work in the gritty urban environment of Choloma, as well as their outreach far to the south in the rural, mountainous region of Marcala. In both settings, presented on separate DVD’s, you will witness the gentle and mysterious power of small acts of compassion, love, and prayer flower into something beautiful for God. The work of the Medical Missionaries of Mary is rooted in the gentle and mysterious power of small acts of compassion and love.
