The Holy Mountain, Pt 9: Elder Paisios

I'm nearing the end, I promise!

On Tuesday evening, we went to visit Panagoudas, Elder Paisios' cell. The Elder is HIGHLY venerated on the Mountain and in Thessaloniki. It seems certain that the Church will name him a saint.

The top photo is taken outside his cell. The entrance is right behind us. The middle photo is taken from that entrance. The Elder's small room is to the left, and his chapel is to the right. That's pretty much all that's there. The bottom photo is the Elder's chair in the chapel, with his coat still on the chair.
