During a weekend retreat (July 9) at St. Joseph's Abbey in Spencer, MA., Father Matthew gave a conference about Pope Benedict and how the Pope likened the Eucharist to "electricity" and "atomic fusion." He spoke about how whether the world recognizes it or not, the Eucharist is the source of grace and its power envelopes the whole world with its energy. On Saturday I went to the Abbey Church to take pictures while it was empty. I think based on what the Pope said regarding the Eucharist, you will find these pictures interesting. Even though I am sure that there is a natural explanation for the way they turned out, I did not do anything at all with these pictures. They are not re-touched.
