    Reported by:

    In remembrance of the life of Father Frank Cassidy, a new age Catholic priest who encouraged meditation, liberal ideologies, and open spirituality, Immaculate Conception Church asked the local Archbishop O'Connell to bless the church's new meditation center. In a moment of quiet, everyone extended their hands over the bishop and prayed in silence to extend their well wishes. The only light came from a small window in the corner and a series of candles flickering in the center of the room.

    I love Your Shot photographer Rose Ungvari's comment: "The lighting you have captured really makes your image even more special. I feel a higher power has entered this room in remembrance of the life of Father Frank Cassidy! Your choice of black and white with the incredible tones adds to the mood of everyone there with their arms/hands extended in silent prayer. I especially like the hand in the foreground, almost as if it is your hand also taking part in this spiritual event..."
