Pilgrimage to Mt Athos 2016. Fr Joseph Skinner

- Fr. Joseph, was this trip in any way different from your previous ones? - Every visit to Athos is different. It's very difficult to express in words. This one was very calm, we walked absolutely everywhere, from one end of the Holy Mountain to the other, it was a total immersion into the atmosphere of the place, very peaceful. We travelled from monastery to monastery, staying a night in each one. We arranged it so that we didn't use taxis, but walked from one place to the next. We covered 124 km in just 4 days.
