Winner: Sandy Valles Leon "This symbolizes two people coming together in union through their vows; a sacred promise to each other never to leave their love behind."
Runner-Up: John Boes' "Graduation" This picture is of my brother at graduation and I thought it caught the moment perfectly.
3rd Place: Morgan Floyd's "Crosses in the Sky" "Taken in South Dakota, these life-sized crosses made it easy for me to understand the setting in which Jesus was in. It was extremely moving."
The following submissions were chosen for publication as Honorable Mention...
"The Virgin & Candles" by Ansley Alberts "I took this photo during the March for Life trip in Washington in January 2014. This photo depicts Mary of the Rosary watching over the glowing candles lit for those in need of her intercession. This picture also shows Mary extending her love over all who come to her."
"The Greatest Act of Love": by Kayla Stewart "This is a photo taken at Arlington National Cemetery in Washington DC. Every single person in there proves how loved we really are. They laid down their life for us, the greatest act of love possible."
"Serenading" by David Cao "The priest holding the microphone was singing for the crowd, and he was singing for donations to the church. In the picture, he is serenading an elderly woman as the crowd watches in good humor."
"Bond" by Sandy Valles "This shot is a symbol of sister bond, because they love each other, & a sister bond can never be replaced."
"Twin Embrace" by Michael Helman "This photo was taken by my mom right after my twin brother, Evan, had completed surgery."
