Eduardo Verastegui

Last weekend Kasey, Maria, Nick and I went to see Eduardo Verastegui,  the lead actor in the movie Bella (Winner of the Toronto Film Festival), speak about his life and his involvement in the pro-life movement. Basically, about 8 years ago he gave up all the money and fame of his acting career to pursue a life with greater meaning. He has resolved to only accept acting jobs that elevate human dignity and has also created his own film production company. The company’s first film is Bella which, as far as we know, has saved over 200 babies.

At one point, he had most of the women in the room in tears. He was such a great speaker and I encourage anyone to go who has the chance to hear him speak.

To give you an idea of what his talk was like I’m including a video where he gives a very brief summary of his testimony:

    Eduardo is truly a hero! Thank you for bringing him to my attention.

    • Me encanta lo que haces . doy gracias a Dios por hacer de ti un instrumento para ayuda ala gente nesecitada
      Eres maravilloso . no solo en cara sino en tu espirito . eres un ejemplo a seguir . un ejemplo para los jovenes de hoy que lo que les interesa es cosas vanas , no ven el espirito de ellos ya que no se acercan a Dios y ala Virgen Santicima , no saben que las cosas vanas se quedan cuando Dios nos llama y las cosas espirituales y la ayuda y el amor al projimo se queda en las mentes y corazones y tu vas sin las manos vasias a Dios
      Que Dios te bendiga siempre que tu razon sea siempre la ayuda . ya que asi tu alma sera sanada y tu espirito se ensalsaria
      mis oraciones estan contigo

    I don’t think he is a hero is just a person who is raising his voice to try to make a change on this frivolous society we are living. Everybody can make changes on others people lifes. He is a famous caracter and he using his status to reach more people that’s all. I think everybody can be a hero.

      I agree with you!! :) Anyone can be a hero !! If I were famous, I’d Deff want to take advantage of that by telling the world what I believe in ! :)

    What a beautiful guy! God bless him. He uses
    his great beauty and his loving heart to bring
    others to Christ, the love of God incarnate.
    May the Good Lord give him every blessing of body, mind, soul and spirit for his gift of himself for what is, under grace, good and noble in both man and woman.

    Truly a beautiful testimony of God moving us to be instruments of his will. Thank you for sharing, I pray to have the courage to surrender my will in order to submit to Gods will. Mr. Verastegui is inspiring and I pray God will continue to bless him in his career so he may continue to be a light in a dark world. Encourage Hollywood to support Mr. Verastegui and more films like Bella.

  9. I adore this man! I recently saw The Butterfly Circus&decided to do a little research.Come to find out I have already seen him previously in Bella&didn’t even realize it.His pro-life story was beautiful~just made me like him even more!! :) Keep up the good work Eduardo
