I guess this scene did not effect me the way it did you, and perhaps it is because I do not have the religious background that you have.

Oh, I was swooning for "transcendent moments" in film and over art with religious subjects from way back when, long before I had a religious bone in my body.

I don't think people need to see themselves as religious to be moved by religious themes or motifs. A lot of people I know are post-church, even post-God, no longer believing any of the teachings (not just Christians but Jews and Muslims). But they still respond to the imagery and themes of religious stories, which appeal to the hearts and imagination even if the intellect is not on board.

I'm glad you commented, Primula. :)
