I had the privelege of being present when five men graduated from Becket Hall this past Saturday. Becket is the residential program for those discerning a possible call to the priesthood and these five men are a fine examples for anyone considering a vocation in the Catholic Church. I spent most of the ceremony taking photos of their faces as they prayed and celebrated together, but this photo of their backs at the end of the ceremony might be my favorite. Seeing them all standing in the same position, alongside one another gives me a sense of their solidarity and the brotherhood that has formed between them the past year.
