Liturgy at the Chapel of Saint John Climacus

We celebrated the Divine Liturgy at the Chapel of Saint John Climacus for his feast day.

At the head of the valley leading to the chapel. Two boys ran eagerly ahead. Their mothers and other pilgrims followed patiently behind.

A massive outcrop of granite with a garden below, just at sunrise.

Lighting the lamps and candles for the service.

The icon of Saint John was adorned with flowers.

Father Michael reading the Gospel. ‘Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.’ (Matthew 11:28-30)
