The following is an excerpt from Seeking the One Whom We Love: How RSCJs Pray:

You Gave Me Wonder

Photography has been a way of praying for me, “of witnessing the wonder,” most of my life. When I was a child, I used to borrow Dad’s Brownie camera and wander around the woods, listen for the birds, take photos of them or watch a lone leaf hanging from a branch or a flower growing out of broken cement. I was intrigued by what I could see through a lens. It was a contemplative calling to me long before I understood what that meant. A simple solitary walk in the woods became a life-long pilgrimage.
