Here's another question.  Smiley

We have a church based school.  Tomorrow is picture day.

We usually take photos of all the students, each class, and then individual photos.

Usually the photos are taken after the Moleben up on the Ambo, before the closed Royal Gates.

Since I am the "photographer" I was planning on setting up a chair for the kids to sit in for their individual photos, that way they won't keep moving around forcing me to keep retaking the photos.

Is that "too" much, or it okay to set a chair up their so each child will quietly sit for their photo.

I've instructed them of the importance of the Solea/Ambvon and they are not permitted to wonder at will, or cross from one side the next, etc....and I try to keep their voiced down to a hush.

So, in short, is it okay to take photos in front of the Royal Gates?  I know people do it all the time, but, people do a lot of things.  Smiley


Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

On special occasions, our priest lets people have their photos taken up at the front. This happens on days such as the annual recognition of graduates, when someone in the parish wins some kind of award, and things like that.  Smiley

He will come again with glory to judge the living and the dead. His kingdom will have no end.
