THE ICON CAME TO ESKER Friday April 15th 6pm to Sunday April 17th 2pm.
My photo of today in Esker, Sunday April 17th: a young boy was with his mother and grandmother, sitting near the icon. I was sitting across the aisle. The boy, Milo, (age 7, – ’seven and a half’) took his Mom’s iPhone, went up close to the icon, and from about six inches took this close-up of Jesus, who looks about the same age as himself. I saw what he captured, and a little while later asked him if he would take the same photo for me, on my own iPhone. He did. I love it. Thanks, Milo! May he mind you!
