Here we lived on this side of the lake. Even the ducks seemed to know, and would not come near. The condition we suffered caused physical disfigurement and disability. The monks who looked after Mary and I kept their distance. They insisted we pray and immerse ourselves in the water many times during the day and night to wash away our sins. Mary and I met here in the leprosarium and fell in love. Together we watched the sun rise and set over the lake many times. Our spirits return here often to immerse ourselves in memories of the past.
