At the monastery, we venerated the relics of St Arsenios the Cappadocian inside the katholikon and then went to the grave of Elder Paisios (top photo). There, I ran into a German woman who had recently converted to Orthodoxy in Tallahassee, FL of all places. Apparently, she came there just after we left! And now she was spending a couple weeks here in Greece, visiting monasteries. What a small world!
Anyway, we then had a coffee in arhondariki (second photo) and talked with some of the other pilgrims. The bottom photo is of a beautiful icon of Elder Paisios which adorns the trapeza.
