let me become a silent film

preludetowind:

Magnificent sequence of Kiki’s kind nature to help her elderly customer bake a pie in a traditional method, even costing her health and engaging activities in order to deliver the goods to the birthday party of her customer’s granddaughter. It shows that no matter how hard you work, sometimes it goes under-appreciated. In truth, you and I have been in that situation before. The beauty of Studio Ghibli films is that we can relate to a lot of the hardships these characters go through in a very realistic circumstance.

Let us all remember this: one cannot proclaim the Gospel of Jesus without the tangible witness of one’s life. Those who listen to us and observe us must be able to see in our actions what they hear from our lips, and so give glory to God!

—Pope Francis  (via thefullnessofthefaith)
