Love devotion and surrender.

Greek nuns prostrate themselves on the floor during an Easter celebration in the Greek Orthodox Church of the Holy Sepulchre, Jerusalem, Israel. (Sepulchre means tomb, and the Church is founded on the exact crucifixion and burial place of Jesus Christ. It was discovered and excavated by Helen, Constantine's mother).

The emotion conveyed by the gesture was so full of love, devotion and surrender that I simply had to take a photograph.

There is a powerful Greek, and Greek Orhodox presence in Israel, as well as a significant Kytherian presence, and I am very surprised that more Kytherian Diapora submissions have not been made to kythera-family from Israel.
