John the Baptist, the Irish way

I found this on Youtube today, an animated movie whose script is basically an audio of Biblical stories told by Irish schoolgirls in the 1960s. I don't know if it's because of the Irish accent, but even I, an unrepentant unbeliever and long time lapsed catholic, found this story of the birth of Quebec's patron saint utterly irresistible. I love the naïveté of the whole thing and will watch more of those short films in the future.
