The urge to prayer is universal. All religions have modes of prayer and prayers that are characteristic. Some are more well-known than others. The first is a man and a woman in the adoration chapel at the National Shrine in D.C. I posted this before but this is a bit of a reworking with Aperture 3.
A very old Jesuit in Australia at prayer before the evening community Mass.
A much younger Jesuit doing his evening meditation at Sevenhill, SA, Australia.
A couple at prayer in Longshan Temple in the old section of Taipei. This was New Year's Eve 2010. Ignatius and I wisely decided against going to Taipei 101, once the tallest building in the world. There were approximately 2 million people there.
