Franciscan Priest Ringing a Bell then Forcefully Closing his Door




As this priest was closing the church, he permitted me to stay 10 minutes to take a few pictures. When I took the picture of the mosaic of the seal of the President of the United States depicted in an olive tree in the dome of his Catholic Church, by the Garden of Gethsemane in Jerusalem, I stopped him to ask, “Why is the seal of the President of the United States in the olive tree in the dome of this church in Israel?” At once, he escorted me out of the church without answering my question. I took this picture of him as he briskly shut the door. The reflection in his eyes is actually of me standing in the sunlight of the open doorway.
