Radiant with Prayer

I almost felt guilty taking this photo - there's something very intimate about this, the way each of these people is lost in prayer.

 

They are near the grotto in Lourdes where thousands of candles are lit, as a symbol of prayer.

 

It seems like each person invests the candle with so much of their hopes and fears...
