Serenity

Churches provide a very peaceful and serene environment. To the believer they are a place of prayer. To the non-believer they can be a place of meditation. I wanted to show this duality in a photo. I went to the church of Christ the King near Beirut and took this photo of the Reverend Mother lighting the candles next to the statue of the Virgin Marie.
