A Seat for Reflection.

A chair made of petrified wood sits on a hill on the grounds of a Benedictine Monastery. The chair has been there as long as the Sisters can remember. It is a place to reflect and meditate on the world around them. The Sisters of this Monastery do charitable work for children, orphans, and disabled people in their community and in Piedras Negras Mexico.
