Father Frances Steiger blesses Shiner with holy water as
he exits the last liturgy of the day, known as Compline, before the start of
the evening's Grand Silence, which lasts until 2:30 a.m. "What I hoped was for
students to have an opportunity to spend a weekend experiencing another way of
being a Christian, another way of living out the Gospel in the world," says
Shiner. "Hopefully . . . awaking to a richer experience."
