Here is a story of a Georgian monk who is seeking the blessing of the
Patriarch to live on top of a 40 metre high rock column.

Read about a Georgian monk who is making plans to be a stylite (pillar dweller) like some of the saints of old:

This is a repeat from Fr. Ambrose's post earlier

Vain existence can never exist, for \\\"unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain.\\\" (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

I recall thinking about a year ago while I was at some service in the Finland's Valamo monastery and listening some prayer for stylites and all the other kinds of ascetics that this prayer must be a little out-dated since there aren't any that kind of ascetics anymore. Apparently it seems that I was wrong.  Smiley
