alone in the great silence...

... it is not in many words, but in the purity of heart and tears of compunction that we are heard.

Beautiful. One of the Church Fathers said the prayers of the Publican and the Thief were heard in their few words due to their humility.

You outdid yourself this time.

"No humility; no holiness. No holiness; no heaven." ~ St. Francis de Sales

Thanks be to God for our Holy Priests.

Nice picture of modern day holiness in the trenches away from the cloister.

Thank you for this wonderful photo of a humble, prayerful priest. I can't help but think of all he has given up for the glory of God.

A perfect image to end the Year of the Priest.
