Yesterday evening, it was a joy to hear from Alexander and George, who have been greatly blessed on their pilgrimage to the Holy Mountain, in the sacred monasteries of Docheiariou and St Panteleimon.
In Docheiariou, they had the great privilege of venerating the icon of the Mother of God ‘Quick to Hear’ and receiving the speedy help of the Theotokos in solving accommodation problems, whilst in the Russikon they were able to venerate the skull of the Holy Great-Martyr and Healer, Panteleimon, the beloved heavenly patron of the cenobium.
The messages from our young men make clear how much God’s Grace and love has touched them, and how much they have felt His Presence. Glory to God!
I was very happy to see the photographs of the felines of the Holy Mountain, especially to see George fussing them and giving them devout attention!
May He grant our young pilgrims abundant Grace and mercies in the days ahead, as they visit so many more holy places.
