Saints Galakteon and Episteme

This year, five of us climbed to the small Chapel of Saints Galakteon and Episteme for the celebration of the Divine Liturgy. The newly glorified Elder Paisios lived at Sinai from 1962 to 1964, and spent time in prayer and solitude at this hermitage.

The Holy Table in the chapel, with frescoes by Father Pachomius, a monk who died in 1958.

There is a spectacular view of the summit of Mount Sinai from the porch of the hesychasterion.
