He looked for Fr. Robert Mozzachiodi and Father Aloysius Lenta, the two Paulines who passed as the most impassioned with regard to the cinema, and he said to them: "Let's go to the Basilica of St. Paul to pray for a very important grace." They went into the chapel of the Most Blessed Sacrament in the Basilica, where there were no kneelers or pews, knelt down on the marble pavement and remained there for more than an hour. "You can imagine the backache," Father Mozzachiodi wrote after having remained kneeling along side him for the whole time. The "very important grace" of which Alberione had spoken was the beginning of the apostolate of the cinema, as he was soon to reveal.
