One of the sisters called my attention to this beautiful short film. I’d love to read your comments.
A message of the movie is this:
No one has been born by chance and no one was consulted before being brought into the world. The essence and existence of each person is something of extraordinary value, something very important . . . And if no one exists by chance, there is no chance involved in his particular physical and psychological make-up. There is also a reason for the fact that everyone has his own individual temperament, qualities, a particular degree of intelligence, sensitivity and even particular features . . . Everything has a reason for being and existing and each creature has been appropriately gifted for the end which it is to fulfill in the universe. (Frederico Suarez, Mary of Nazareth)

This is one of my absolute favorite short films. Each of us has a purpose and reason for being. Hope is alive.
What a beautiful illustration of a profound truth; the inherent dignity with which God has imbued every single person.
I am the Director of Student Support at boys Catholic High School. In other words, I walk with students who were born challenged. I see this every time a student graduates from a college prep school when others said they would never get in or when a student who I journeyed with sends me their college diploma and begin to walk with others. This film beautifully shows how the grace of the cross is seen again and again in this world -if we believe. Credo
What a blessing you are for those boys, Deborah!
