Peace Be With You

DSC_5234About the Location: I immediately felt welcomed into Deir es-Sultan, the Ethiopian monastery located on the roof of the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. A handful of monks from the Church of Ethiopia live among the ruins of a medieval cloister erected by the Crusaders.

About the Shot:  This is Sadik, possibly the happiest monk alive. His genuinely kind and sweet demeanor was immediately disarming. Sadik is an Ethiopian Christian monk living in quiet, scriptural reflection.
