Connected by….happiness and joy

For Adeline, Joris, Cléa, Alexy and Miley in my hometown in La Roche-en-Ardenne it was a big day, today. In the Saint Nicolas Church, it was the celebration of their First Holy Communion.

While taking pictures I remembered the 34 children and young adults being awarded for their reading, memorizing and reciting of the Holy Qur’an in the serene environment of the Ghameh Omer Al Rawas Mosque in Salalah in the Sultanate of Oman in Southern Arabia.
