Movie Prayers--Virgin Spring (1960)

Our Blessed Jesus, Father, Son. You alone are the Living Bread that from Heaven came. Make me worthy to receive the Bread of Thy Body and save my souls form a worldly death. Amen.
You see it, God. You see it. The innocent child's death, and my revenge. You allowed it. I don't understand You. I don't understand You. Yet, I still ask Your forgiveness. I know no other way to make peace with myself than with my own hands. I don't know any other way to live. I promise You, on the dead body of my only child, I promise You that to cleanse my sins, here I shall build a church. On this spot. Of mortar and stone...And with these, my hands.
