Based on a true account.

Chapter I - Yu

A long time ago when I was little,

I always watched my mother pray.

Holy virgin Maria,

mother of Jesus Christ.

Pray for us sinners

when possible.

Pray for us now. Pray for us

when we're dying.

Your Grace, Mother of Jesus.

I remember her beautiful face.

Blessed virgin Maria, chosen one.

What is it, Yu?

Come to me.

I remember the

beautiful statue of Maria.

Everything was holy...

Thank you, Father, for your love, for

providing the food on the table.

In the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Amen.

Are you okay?

I'm fine. Shall we eat?

Blessed by Jesus Christ.

Virgin Maria, Mother of Jesus.

Pray for us sinners

when possible.

Rest your weary ones.

Bless your dying ones.

There's a possibility that

I'll be going away on a trip.

On a trip?

Can you take care of yourself?

I want you to keep this for me.

Virgin Maria...

Find a woman just like her to marry.

Introduce her to me when

you find her.

Yes, I promise.

It's a promise then.

Jesus, Maria, and Joseph...

In your mercy, look with love

on our dying loved one.

Mother died when I was in grade school.

Dad.

She said she was going on a trip.

Did she...

Dad decided to become a priest then.

I grew up watching him

dedicate himself to the Bible.

During that time I realised that

Mother hadn't...

gone away on a trip but had died.

I remember the day Dad became

a priest, not just a Christian.

And we

moved out of our family home

into the parsonage.

Here you go.

This is heavy...

Are we done?

Mother.

We're doing fine.

My Dad, the priest.

He became known for being

gentle and caring.

His interesting sermons made him popular.

The charity bake sale would be

considered a success if

I 00% of the participants

thought it was a great event.

We were happy then.

Heavenly Father, thank you for this

food, we ask you to bless it...

Thank you for watching

over us, amen.

We had a peaceful life.

Until she came along.

Remember when you

were helped by others...

On that day...

It helps us to remember that

we're being loved by God.

When we remember that...

we know that we have support

and are loved.

We can always hear the whisper

of Jesus in our ears.

"Go and do the same to

your neighbours."

But who are your neighbours?

Don't be selective.

Help and support everybody equally...

Can I help you?

Are you okay?

This is the first time I've

come to a church.

I've never thought about God.

I'm ashamed.

You shouldn't be.

Everybody's like that at first.

When I listened to your

heartfelt sermon...

I couldn't help crying.

Oh, you're so kind.

Make me a Christian, please.

I suggest you take it slowly.

No! I can't wait, I want it now!

You shouldn't rush things.

It is wonderful that

you're asking for God's help.

Have you ever read the Holy Bible?

No.

First, take your time

and read it carefully.

Father.

Can you teach me?

Miss, are you okay?

Hello, are you okay?

Thank you.

Father! Father!

Father!

I bought it! I've read I 2 pages!

The passages around here...

I was so moved.

From that day on

she came to see Dad everyday.

Love should never betray.

She didn't miss a single day.

Wish for your blessing.

Never have ill feelings.

Read from this sentence.

Respect each other.

Do so willingly.

By serving the Lord, you live in

hope and endure hardships...

Father.

Can I go to confession too?

Yes, once you become a Christian

you can go anytime.

Just the 2 of us...

Yes?

Just you and me in that

tiny room, right?

Yes.
