This morning at the Holy Wednesday Liturgy,
a young girl (maybe 7 years old but small for her age)
came in and she went and kissed the icon of Christ on the stand
in the picture above.
Then she would cross herself,
do a full prostration
(bowing, in this case, in front of Christ, with face on ground,
hands in front, knees fully on ground)
and then kissed Christ again, crossed herself, full prostration.
She must have done this at least five times,
very seriously with deliberation, concentration, with the deep love and faith
that only a child can have...
It was beautiful...
