Light a candle, before the heavy gates of the monastery shut behind you.

Follow St. Paul’s footsteps around Thessaloniki, the city with the most important Byzantine churches. In Veroia you can see St. Paul’s Tribune [Bema], where he preached to the Nations, and in the small village of Kastania, the Icon of Panagia Soumela [Madonna at Melas’ place], the famous heirloom that refugees from Pontos [the Black Sea] brought with them. At Paeonia, Serres and Pella traditions of worship merge with nature – even at remote mountain tops one can hear the echo of the dialogue between God and man.
