These past few mornings have been absolutely gorgeous.  I took this pictures on successive mornings, shortly after morning prayer, around 8:00am.

I had to take promotional photos for upcoming publications, so I called on a group of seminarians to help out.  Seven very fun men showed up to take pictures for about 25 minutes on a beautiful day at Conception Abbey.

Of course, when you get a group of seminarians together, they always like to have fun and joke around.  I got the pictures I need, but they also took some pretty downright hilarious pics.

Be joyful.
