Mount Athos in pictures

November 19, 2009

It is a dream of mine to one day visit the ancient monasteries at Mount Athos in Greece.  This evening I have found this beautiful set of photographs taken there.  What a place!  It is heartening to read that the number of new novices is increasing.  Let us hope that monastic life on Mount Athos continues for a very, very long time.
