Mt. Athos 1: To Simonos Petras 2014
Our pilgrimage to the Holy Mt. Athos started at the Düsseldorf airport. We took a taxi from the Thessaloniki to Ouranopolis. After one night stay at this coastal village, we took a speedboat to Daphny.
In Daphny, we took the mini bus of the monks of Simonos Petras that was waiting for us, to this God blessed monastery.
It was a memorable stay at this venerable monastery.
We attended the Pontifical Liturgy of Metropolite Kallistos of Diokleia [which is the culmination of our pilgrimage] and were guided to the famous Library. But the most unforgettable moments were our meeting and conversations with the monks there: Father Isaia and Fr. Cosmas.
Ah... Simonos Petras, what an awsome view: the cliffhanger guesthouse, the deep blueish Aegean sea and most of all the holy serenity of this place will trancend you into heaven!
