Benedictine hands at prayer

By Andrew-Bede Allsop

I am a Benedictine Oblate and this is a self-portrait of my hands whilst praying in the early hours of the morning. I find prayer in the early hours to be very special, I feel closest to God then and closes to my fellow Benedictines. I set the camera up to take a number of photographs at intervals so did not know which would best portray my prayer.
