Reverence Before The Lord...

According to Ma Beck, the church of St. John Cantius had a narrow escape. One of the candles caught fire and the burning, dripping wax threatened to make the whole altar go up in flames.

Luckily one of the priests had spotted it, and hurried forward to put the fire out...

...but he genuflected first...

That's what I call having a sense of the sacred!

It wasn't even a priest - it was a Brother - he only has one year of seminary under his belt!
But --- his brother is also in the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius (he will enter seminary next year) and his sister is a Dominican Sister of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist.
Quite a family.
And his parents were converts!
