Today's Short Film Is About Saints. And Dogs. And Fire.

Shared by my friend, Will Duquette, who runs Patheos Catholic's "Cry Woof!" blog. It's particularly relevant to him because he's a Lay Dominican. And it's particularly relevant to the rest of us because that dog really DID set the world ablaze. (Also, I love the felt-y feel. And the final "assembly" shot is wonderful stuff.)

Jakub Bednarz's film was made for the 800-year anniversary of the Dominican Order. Based on a legend about the dream of mother of St Dominic, in which she gave birth to a dog with a lit torch held between his teeth that set fire to the world. This dog later became the symbol of Saint Dominic and the Dominican friars.
