Nun Praying at Mt St Michel France
At the end of 2014, and during Christmas season, I thought I would share this photo.
Meditation, Reflection, History, Mystery.
Light pours into the room, surrounded by the shining, reflecting mystery of God,
A nun, on her knees on that hard floor, alone with God,
in a side temple hundreds of years old,
on that ancient rock, surrounded by incoming and outgoing tides.
In her perfectly starched white habit,
head slightly tilted,
her habit a flawless white puddle of white on the ancient floor,
surrounded by, and part of, the Beauty and Mystery of God.
Mt St Michel in France is a place I’ve always wanted to go to. An island separated from the mainland by incoming tides. A huge rock outcropping, an ancient monastery, and plenty of tourist shops on the cobblestone road rising up to the monastery.
I love this shot!
