A monk at the door

A monk at the door.

This fine Sunday morning I took my visiting American friends to Mass at the Benedictine monastery in Abu Ghosh.
The sung worship of the monks and nuns sounded so nice in the old and beautiful 12th century Crusader church.

A beautiful photo, Dina. Wish I had been there for the Mass. But I have some Abu Ghosh music to enjoy - thank you!

What a very high door you've found! Maybe people were much taller in the 12th century?

Thanks for participating in WWDD!

Still have somewhere in the back of my mind, to become once a monk.

Please have a good new week ahead.

That is a wonderful picture - the old church from an era past, the peaceful monk about to open the door as we are invited too. A peaceful view...

That is a simple, welcoming door. Need there be more.

thank you for your comments on my doggie and yes, she is a schnocker. And she does act like she is crazy drunk sometimes, too. hahaha.

Lovely composition. The hanging creepers adding beauty to the picture.
