Father Stanislovas: My desire is that peace and joy, not conflict and chaos, spring from the Earth

“Father Stanislovas is a very superior person, an exceptional priest, a human being who became a legend while being alive. Some disfavoured him, others worshiped, yet no one was indifferent. Being a forthright thinker, an unconventional preacher, he was a spring of spirituality, capable of inspiring kindness and humanity, of approaching, understanding and condoling a disadvantaged person. Even death cannot overcome the spring: he is alive in reminiscences, stories and hearts of people.
This project is another evidence of his vitality. <...>The photographs of Gintaras Česonis magically unfold Father Stanislovas portrait that, followed by thoughts of the priest himself, recreated the reality witnessed by people more than once, the captured moment: desire of close presence and nothing else.”
