    Thank you, padraig. That's from one of my favorite Disney movies of all time, Fantasia. It's a series of unrelated short stories set to classical musical.

    Although the Ave Maria video is its own entity, I don't think it was a coincidence when the producers decided to place it last in the line, right after Night On Bald Mountain. To me, the two videos work together and remind us that as bad as it gets, don't worry. The devils' time is short. Good will triumph over evil at the end.

    Beautiful, I think it's from Fantasia . . .kind of Art Deco in style. I like how he brought in the illusion of cathedral windows in the forest background. And the darkness before the light. The candles look like halos and the people go on and on with a reverence.

    I remember watching this as a very small kid with my Mother, who was raised Catholic, and later joined the Lutheran church. As Ave Maria began, she began to cry.... And wept throughout the sequence. I had no idea why she was crying, but realize now that this must have touched something very deep down in her heart. It was like she was missing something or someone and was wanting something back. I think I can understand a little bit now why.

    Maybe say a little prayer for the visionary, the good man who started it all and gave the world such wonderful, inspiring tales. He touched the hearts of millions.

    What faith, if any, did Walt Disney profess? I remember some earlier films had references to faith and prayer.

    Walt was a very devoted Congregationalist Christian, his family's religion. In fact Walt owes his name in a sense to religion. Walt's father Elias was a very good friend of Reverend Walter Parr, who preached at the Saint Paul Congregational Church, where the family attended church.

    In 1949, Disney wrote in Guideposts magazine: "I believe firmly in the efficacy of religion, in its powerful influence on a person's whole life. It helps immeasurably to meet the storm and stress of life and keep you attuned to the Divine inspiration. Without inspiration, we would perish. All I ask of myself, 'Live a good Christian life.' To that objective I bend every effort in shaping my personal, domestic, and professional activities and growth."
