You want to stay for 3 days, but your bishop recommended you commit for only a day. It sounds like you should let them know that you're definitely staying for a day, but might want to stay an additional two. They can probably accommodate that.
At the time I just told my Bishop that I want to visit the monastery, he told me to contact them. But I am not sure if he knows that I want to stay there for the day. :/
Our Cantor from Church makes frequent visits there.

Inquire with the guest master/coordinator and see if the abbot will give you a blessing to stay for a few days.

I suppose it's that hope of reaching a purity suitable for God's presence that constitutes what we call "faith," or the hope of things to come.

I am 15 years old, and I want to stay at a monastery for a short time to see what the monastic life is like (3 days), I already spoke with Bishop Seraphim of Sydney, he told me to call them up and visit them for a day and see what happens from there, but how would I let them know that I want to stay for a bit longer?
Btw the monastery I wish to visit is the Pantanassa monastery, Sydney.
Thanks!

Does Satan and the devils really "see God" anymore?

Good point. To be in God's presence, look upon Him (whatever that means), and not be consumed is to attain a level of holiness fitting of only the saints.

Indeed!  I am reminded of the beatitude:  "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God."

While one can say purity may lie in sinlessness, one can also say another side of purity is the striving through struggles, as gold is tried through fire.  And so when I struggle, even when I am angry at God and feel hopeless, I still think there is light at the end of the tunnel, and seek that purity that many saints came out, as 24 karats out of the world's miseries.

"Count it all joy when you enter trials".  I'm taught peace is not what you wish to gain from around you, but from within you.
