My friend Alexander Buder has written and directed a remarkable short film aptly titled "Grace."

The last image before the fade-to-white at the end is truly stunning. I will never look at the Mary chapel in my parish (and that is my parish) the same way again.

This fall, Alex (who does not appear in the film) will be a seminarian of the Archdiocese of Washington. Please pray for him and for all seminarians.
