Dear Friends,

May the Lord give you peace!   I’m convinced of the power of photography in promoting vocations and recently I came across ‘A Photographer’s Prayer’ by an unknown author in the Irish Catholic:

“Oh, god, as I bring my subject into focus, let me remember that I’m creating treasures for some family.   Make me sensitive to the qualities and virtues of others, that I may draw out into the light the beautiful radiant belongings of their hearts.   Help me to be an artist, collecting the beauty of every soul, the glow of youth, the laughter or tears of each life that is precious in your sight.   Between the lights and shadows, keep me from getting out of focus, so that my life and work may be framed with dignity and coloured with contentment.   Amen”
