Everlasting Priest

In 2021 I began to visit and photograph a priest near from my home. His name is Don Manuel, he is 93 years old and has been it his entire life. Don Manuel says that he wants to go to finish his life in his born town but actually he never goes. He is used to say that the Church doesn't send other priest so he cannot leave. He showed me almost his whole home talking me about some stories and wishes of his life. As a sacred signal, a rosed light embrace the sunset and I ask him a portrait in front of his home.
