Following St. Sava’s paths on Holy Mount Athos
At the end of October, members of the Charity organization SERBS FOR SERBS stayed on Mount Athos and took the opportunity to visit a number of monasteries and sanctuaries. A revisit to the Great Lavra Hilandar was definitely the most significant part of our stay. The monastery brotherhood hosted us in a brotherly manner and during our stay, we agreed on the future co-operation on the charity and spiritual agenda. During the stay on Mount Athos, representatives of the organization Serbs for Serbs visited Hilandar, and the monasteries of Esphigmenou, Iviron, Cell of St. Sava in Karyes, the Sketes of St. Andrew and St. Basil, and the Protaton Cathedral, where the icon of Axion Esti, the most saintly icon of the whole monastic state, is kept. Prior to arrival at Mount Athos, we went on pilgrimage to the Tomb of St. Demetrios, Catacombs of Saint John and the Temple of Saint Gregory Palamas in Thessaloniki.
