Ordination: John Massey's mother, 1987

Description

John Massey's mother (right). Before the ordination ceremony is performed it is necessary for the candidate to receive his parent's permission to enter the monastic order. The candidate must also be free of debt. These requirements are made so that the monk will not be distracted from religious practice and study.
