Our family recently went on a pilgrimage to Israel. We visited the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem. One side of the church was densely packed with pilgrims waiting to enter the Grotto of the Nativity. Everyone was tightly squeezed together. I left the group for a few minutes to explore the rest of the church. I found that the other side of the church totally unoccupied except for one lone monk serenely standing in the sunlight filtering through the church windows. A perfect moment of peaceful devotion to Christ, our Lord.
