Monastery of the Holy Spirit

There is a monastery right outside of Atlanta that is home to more than 40 Catholic monks. It's a breathtakingly beautiful place open to the public for people to come and experience peace, quiet, and the presence of the Lord. We got up early one Sunday morning and visited the Monastery of the Holy Spirit to do just that. It was almost as if we had the grounds to ourselves since the tourist facilities were closed for the Sabbath. We wandered around and enjoyed the scenery, prayed and spent time in reflection, and we took a few photos.
