Wednesday Evening at St. Anne's

The sun was setting as we walked back from Little St. Anne's to St. Anne's, and we stopped again at the cross to admire it, as you can see Thomas doing above.

Here the sun is setting behind St. Anne's as we approached.

Here Thomas and Paris take a rest in the courtyard outside the main church after we got back.

After we rested for a few minutes, the pilgrims decided to say the Salutations to the Mother of God before an icon of her as child in the arms of her mother, St. Anne (see above). There were probably about 10 or 12 of us, and we did about half of it in English.

Of course, I can't forget to mention that we venerated the skete's treasure, the left foot of St. Anne!
