In a confessional room an older, bearded monk sits on a red-upholstered armchair, listening to a younger monk who kneels before him, leaning against him. On the floor are two heavy books; under the monk's chair is an hourglass and another book. Through the open door is a glimpse of an altar with chalice. (Virginia K. Anderson 02/27/95)
