The Last Day at St. Antony Monastery…

Today, I finally had a chance to walk around entire monastery’s territory and explore by myself. By the way, it was quite a long walk: the monastery’s property is about 700 acres. And…here was a surprise. I saw from the distance a nicely looking church building (the monastery has three churches)…

As I approached it, a beautiful and very sizeable “lake” appeared. Naturally, it was a man-made lake, but what a pleasure to see something like this in desert

I liked St. Antony and its brotherhood and will definitely be back. In the meantime, I was given two presents – two nice “memories” to take with me: the icon of St. Antony and the rosary. Big THANKS goes to all monks and novices who made me feel home at St. Antony.
